The Museum of Sacred Art Contemporary Stauròs is located in the city of Isola del Gran Sasso of Italy, in the province of Teramo. The museum is located in the sanctuary of St. Gabriel and is considered the first museum of its kind in Italy. It was born in 1973 with the establishment of a contemporary Staurós International Association, as contemporary art and Christian point of reference. Thanks to the Biennale of Sacred Art which took place in Pescara in 1984, the museum has acquired many works. The main objective of the exhibition space is to convey the faith through art and culture. The collection includes works with standard themes: the crucifixion and the passion in their interpretations and revisions. Among the artists who have spoken and have exhibited at the museum include: Ernesto Treccani, Nicola Salvatore, Umberto Mastroianni, Guerrini Lorenzo, Giuliano Giuliani and many others. The museum hosts temporary exhibitions and the Biennale of Sacred Art, now anticipated event by all national contemporary artists.
