San Giovanni Battista is a deconsecrated church that houses ancient and contemporary stained glass windows dating back to the 19th and 20th centuries. These windows come from the “Luigi Fatti” donation and the “Giuseppina Bernardini” collection. The city of Sansepolcro is very proud of the artistic heritage contained within it. Around 1937 the cavalier Luigi Fatti commissioned a work from the Caselli sisters to be donated to the city once finished. This work is the glass reproduction of the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci in the actual size and is in fact the most valuable piece in the museum. The contemporary artist Silvio Vigliaturo, thanks to his great creativity, made a stained glass window or screen, using a Picasso style two-dimensionality of the subjects and bright colors. In fact it is one of the most beautiful and important works kept in the museum.
