Just to the left of the Basilica is the entrance to the museum.
After you walk through the portal you will emerge in the courtyard. (Above)
Along the portico you will find Roman capitals and medieval columns from
the 8th and 9th centuries.
The Museum was organized in 1980 on the occasion of the celebration of
the 15th centennial of St. Benedict's birth.
In addition to the Christian artifacts you will also find some Etruscan
and Roman works. There art 4th c. B.C. votive works and 2nd and 1st
c. B.C. Roman coins among these rarities.
To the left and below you can see some of the artifacts that reside in
the Treasury Hall. Here we can admire an impressive collection of
sacred vases, silverware used for liturgical purposes, chalices, reliquaries,
