The dialogue between life and death visible throughout the Museum culminates in the crypt, where old and modern works live side-by-side: a 15th-century cross set with gemstones in contrast but also in conversation with the installation on the Apocalypse by Jannis Kounellis (2012) - redemption linked to revelation through Christ’s sacrifice;
Stations of the Cross and a frieze by Lucio Fontana (1957); a marble statue of a prelate by the Lombard sculptor Bambaia (early 16th century); two panels by the Irish artist Sean Shanahan.
