Liturgical vestments of origin, manufacture and different type of decoration, suggest the evolution of styles, materials and technique of sacred vestments. The color of the liturgical vestments is functional to the description of the mysteries that are celebrated throughout the year and in each day: in particular, pinkish only used twice a year on Sundays Laetare e Gaudente, and white and gold for the feasts and celebrations, the purple in Lent. Among the liturgical vestments include: Dalmatian in a purple velvet attributable to Catanzaro's manufacturing in the second half century XV, a cope fabric "a giardino" dating to the beginning of the century XVIII and seventeenth cope in a purple silk damask with stolon in Gros de Tour laminate.
