The alms box, dated to 1656, is in the church of Saint Michael on the left side, near the triptych realized by Bartolomeo di Andrea Bochi (1439), a Pistoian artist. It is made of iron and pietra serena, which is engraved with an iscription: ''ELEMOSINE/PLANIME/DEL PUR/GATORIO'. These type of works were widespread during XIV and XVI century, in accord to the doctrine of indulgences: a part of the consequences derived from a sin could be cancelled with an offering (oblatio) in favor of the works of Church, reducing the permanence of the souls in Purgatory.
