San Pietro Museum in Colle Val d’Elsa
A journey through the town's history, via its most important artworks

The San Pietro Museum in Colle Val d'Elsa occupies the monumental complex of the convent of San Pietro, which was built in 1604 by Pietro Usimbardi to the designs of Giorgio Vasari the Younger.

The works on display narrate the history of the town in a constant dialogue between religious expression and civic ambition, which was responsible, following the institution of its diocese, for Colle's recognition as a city in 1592.

A visit to the museum begins with sacred artworks, before moving into the rooms devoted to the municipal collections from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries: these latter rooms contains works by local painters such as Antonio Salvetti and Walter Fusi. Finally, visitors arrive at the collection of Romano Bilenchi, one of the Italy's most important post-war writers and intellectuals.
