The oratory of saint Joseph is one of the most beautiful and ancient monuments of Urbino, property of the st. Joseph Confraternity. It is composed by a church builted in the 17th century with a lot of frescoes, some paintings and a colossal statue of saint Joseph. There are also a sacristy with a beautiful wooden painted wardrobe, a little chapel called "dello sposalizio" and a unique room with a crib in full size made by the artist Federico Brandani in the 1550, the oldest crib in natural size in the world. In some showcases are exposed several silver objects from 18th Century, donated by cardinal Albani, and there is also a section of Confraternity History with ancient uniforms and objects.
