With the abolition of the religious guilds, the Municipality of Montefalco found itself managing all the assets that had previously belonged to the church, including a number of works of art. These were initially housed in the offices of the Palazzo Comunale.
In 1895, all the works were moved to the Church of San Francesco and displayed without any particular criteria, giving the church an extremely dull, drab appearance and detracting from the significance and appeal of the works.
There was a real need to renew the look of the exhibition room and around 1990, restoration of the former monastery premises made it possible to create a suitable venue for these pieces.
