The Permanent Collection



The Permanent exhibition of Paul VI Collection was inaugurated on 8th November 2009 and it contains approximately 207 works, arranged on two floors.

The principal itinerary is mainly composed of paintings but there is also a great space dedicated to two specific sections, one including sculptures and medals and the other focused on graphic works.

All the conception of the Museum summarises the thoughts of Pope Montini on the theme of Art, showing to visitors a great space dedicated to the contemplation of objects not necessarily related to the sacred art in its specific and sectoral meaning.

Montini, indeed, intended to convey that the meaning of the sacred does not shine through the symbols of religions, particularly in one religion, but lies in profound questions, in ambitious investigations, because art, if real and authentic, is investigation of meaning, in other words “religious”.


The building is served by a lift for the accessibility of elderly people, people with disabilities and prams or pushchairs.
