Stumbled across this museum almost by accident but wandered in and was pleasantly surprised. While the collection isn't huge there is enough to allow you to see a good spread of work while not being overwhelmed allowing you to appreciate the pieces. The sleepers and...More

This little known Museum of contemporary art by sculptor Marino Marini, is located In the Plaza San Pancrazio, inside the former old church of the same name. It’s pretty modern stuff as he only died 37yrs ago. Even though he was born in Pistoia, he...More

Art is a very personal thing: if you do appreciate the art of Marino Marini then you would probably want to rate this more highly. Little can be seen inside of what the guide book says is "one of the oldest churches in Florence". Structural...More

Located in an old church, this exhibit of Marino Marini's sculptures and paintings and drawings shows 50 plus years of active artistic talent at work. The setting of the church really offsets the layout of the statues very uniquely. The lighting adds to the effect...More

This was the first museum I can across that did not have long queues to enter. It's really nothing special unless you are into weathered and damaged bronze statues from the early twentieth century. Entry is €6 which for what it is I thought was...More

Secret! This Museo is housed in the de-consecrated Church of San Pancrazio & is a private museum principally dedicated to preserving & showing the work of the internationally recognized artist Marino Marni. The overworked architectural alterations are matched only by Marni's own gigantic, brutal bronzes---...More

If you get overdosed on Madonna-and-Child paintings in Florence, this is the perfect antidote: a wonderfully organised museum, entirely devoted to the works of Marino Marini, in a former church in the centre of the city. Absolutely delightful, and since it is "not what people...More

Leon Battista Alberti was responsible for the upper façade of Santa Maria Novella including the lettered frieze (1470). Another, equally beautiful work is the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem in the Rucellai Chapel. This can be found in the now reinvented San Pancrazio church which has...More

Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
