There are many churches in Italy that contain world famous masterpieces and most of them don't charge you for the entrance. The entrance to Pio Monte della Misericordia chapel has also been free for centuries, while the gallery above the church charged the entrance fee. But now you also have to pay to see the church and the legendary Caravaggio's Seven Works of Mercy painting. The ticket isn't very expensive, but I didn't buy one because I have a serious problem with churches that aren't freely opened for everyone.
Let's just hope that the churches of Rome, where you can also find many Caravaggio's masterpieces, won't follow this pattern and will remain free of charge.
