In one of the exhibition rooms on the second floor of the museum, under a canopy taken from the Bishop's Palace, probably from the throne room, it has been recreated a model of the Bishop’s throne with three wooden stools engraved and golden painted in gouache.

In the same room it is displayed the Bishop’s attire and part of the personal clothing belonging to Msgr. Pasquale Quaremba, Bishop of Gallipoli between 1956 and 1982.

His successor Msgr. Aldo Garzia was entrusted with the unification of the diocese of Gallipoli with the diocese of Nardò, so it was created the diocese of Nardò-Gallipoli in 1986.
