Museo Nazionale del Bargello

Recommendations

I was lucky enough to be born into a family that has been dealing with art for several generations and does so in one of the most important artistic cities in the world, which is why I am very attached to Florentine museums and especially to the Bargello which is the most important and beautiful museum of Renaissance sculpture to the world, with a collection that contains masterpieces by Donatello, Michelangelo, Luca della Robbia and Benvenuto Cellini ... just to name a few. I recommend anyone who asks me for museum advice to visit this spectacular place often forgotten by mass tourism.

Notes from Museo Nazionale del Bargello:
The Bargello National Museum is housed in the ancient Palazzo del Podestà in Florence which, with a royal decree of 22 June 1865, became the first Italian National Museum dedicated to the arts of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Starting from that same year, some of the most important sculptures of the Renaissance, including masterpieces by Donatello, Luca della Robbia, Verrocchio, Michelangelo and Cellini, mostly coming from the Medici-Grand Ducal collection, merged into the palace. Later the museum was enriched with superb examples of bronzes, majolica, waxes, enamels, medals, ivories, tapestries, seals and textiles, also coming in part from the Medici collections, from suppressed convents and from private individuals.
