The Cathedral Museum is one of the largest collections of sacred art and is placed next to Basilica Cathedral of Florido and Amanzio Saints. The Canoscio Treasure in Sala I – twenty-five objects used for the Eucharistic liturgy are on display. Uncovered in 1935 when the fields were being ploughed near the Canoscio Sanctuary to the south of Città di Castello, it is one of the most important archaeological discoveries of recent years and has great historical value. There are chalices, plates, patens, spoons, ciborium and colanders. In Sala 2 there are two valuable examples of goldsmiths craftsmanship. The Paliotto frontal was made in the 12 ͭʰ century and given to the Cathedral in 1142, by Pope Celestino II. It is made of embossed silver and is engraved and partially gilded and was intended to stand behind the altar. The Riccio di Pastorale is also made in 1324 ca. by Goro di Gregorio of Siena.
The “San Crescentino Oratory” (1420) is located in Morra and belongs to the Città di Castello Diocese. It presents a cycle of frescoes by Luca Signorelli – early part of the sixteenth century – in which the painterly inspiration of the painter of Cortona appears in all its mastery.
