Raccolta Kalefati


Published on:  2019-01-10 10:27:19


The Bishop's Palace of Oria preserves the Kalefati Collection, which includes precious ecclesiastical furnishings and archaeological finds. The small museum is dedicated to Bishop Alessandro Maria Kalefati, who took possession of the diocese in 1783 and two years later began his pastoral visits. It was on this occasion that his passion for sacred objects emerged by promoting the restoration of various churches in the area. Bishop Kalefati also devoted himself to the inventory of objects and documents and to the authentication of relics and sacred images. The Cathedral of Oria was enriched with the wooden choir, the stalls of the canons, the seat for the pontifical solemn and four bronze candlesticks, laying the foundations for the foundation of the museum, which also includes a section dedicated to classical archeology.
