The Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament of Castelnuovo Parano belonged to the Brotherhood of the Body of Christ and has a floor of ‘hexagonal’ ceramic tiles arranged in a honeycomb and decorated, and other ceramics. In total, there are about seventy hexagonal tiles in the chapel, of which only 17 are in the best storage conditions.

Decorative elements can be generally zoomorphic (animal forms) or phytomorphic (plant forms), and with frequent female figures. The edge of each tile is always enlivened by coloured lines.
