Museo Nazionale d'Arte Medievale e Moderna della Basilicata


The Palazzo Lanfranchi, built as a seminary incorporating an earlier church in the 17th century, now houses this intriguing museum of sacred and contemporary art. The stars of the show here are Carlo Levi's paintings, including the panoramic mural Lucania '61 depicting peasant life in biblical technicolour. There are also some centuries-old sacred art from the sassi.
