The S.S. Crocifisso Art Collection

The Museum of Sacred Art at Roccalbegna

Roccalbegna
The river Albegna flows through the town of Roccalbegna and the town itself is surrounded by many pastures and farmland. It is believed that the history of this area stretches back to Etruscan times. The church of S.S. Crocifisso is one of the most important churches in the town. It has a Baroque altar which holds the S.S. Crocifisso, a beautiful fifteenth century cross which was painted by the Sienese artist, Luca di Tommè.

There is an oratory connected to the church which was built in 1388 on the site of the town’s very first church. There are many works of art by Francesco Nasini on display inside the oratory, as well as a collection of canvas paintings, statues and other items from the surrounding territory such as paintings, sculptures and liturgical pieces. The church is also known as the Museum of Sacred Art.
