Objects of jewelery and liturgical vestments created with precious fabriscs first appeared in the sacresty of the Hermitage of the Monastery of Camaldoli under Prior General Bonaventura da Fano ( 1315 – 1348 ) who brought the Camaldolese community, still connected to the Romualdo ideal of poverty, to an increased dignity in the liturgical furnishings.
Currently the oldest vestments date back to the 16th century, and are made of Florentine velvet; the most recent one is the chasuble belonging to Gregory XVI (1831-1846), who was a Camaldolese monk.
