FIRST FLOOR - ROOM VIII

Minor arts

On the walls and in the cases of this room some objects once used in San Marino are displayed. Praiseworthy are two 16th century wafer irons, a series of mugs indicating the measures of capacity used in San Marino until 1907, the “game of the white and red” (a game of chance played until the early 20th century).

Besides the coat of arms of Diotallevo Corbelli, Captain Regent in 1516 and 1528, one of the two wafer irons also bears the motto: “Non bene pro toto libertas venditur auro” (liberty is more precious than all gold in the world)

Moreover, a case displays the insignia of the orders of chivalry of Saint Marino and Saint Agata which are conferred upon people for their good service to the Republic and often used as “rewards” by the State for donations made to the Museum.
