Inaugurated in 1975 in the presence of Aldo Moro, then President of the Council, the Fresco Museum of the Crypt of Santa Maria degli Angeli in Poggiardo follows the perimeter of the hypogean church with the exception of the iconostasis and stone furnishings. Among the subjects painted in the frescoes we can recognize a saintly bishop, probably Saint Nicholas, and still Saint Gregory of Nazianzus, Saint John theologian, Saint Anastasius, Jesus at the foot of the Magdalene and Saint Demetrius. Of particular note is the fresco depicting Christ blessing in the Greek manner, ie with two fingers instead of three, as in the Latin tradition.
