MUSEUM DELL'OPERA OF THE DUOMO PISE
Among the sculptures stand the works of Tino Camaino and Giovanni Pisano, including the Virgin and Child in ivory sculpted by Giovanni in 1300 for the high altar of the Cathedral.
In the halls of the Treasury there are many relics of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and some medieval artefacts including that which is said to contain some rocks of Golgotha and the hermit's habit of San Ranieri, patron of the city. There are also preserved paintings from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century, a series of wooden marquetry from the ancient choir apse, a collection of sacred vestments and a collection of Etruscan, Roman and Egyptian. The latter were collected in the nineteenth century by Carlo Lasinio, which made the nearby Camposanto the first museum of the city. Work of Lasinio are also colored prints watercolor representing the frescoes of the Cemetery in their original appearance, prior to damage suffered during the Second World War.
From the cloister of the museum you can enjoy a splendid view of the Leaning Tower.
