Owned by Venice Diocese and promoted by Pope Giovanni Paolo I (Albino Luciani, 1912-1978) when he was patriarch of Venice, this museum gathers already restored or under restoration artworks from the churches in Venice. The museum is in the former Benedectine monastery of Sant’Apollonia, which was built between the XII and the XIII century. It has a hall dedicated to silverware and another to artworks given by priests (such as the Madonnas dressed with traditional Venetian clothes).
