For villas and gardens is a new exhibition project “labeled” Small Museums by Ente Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze. Investigates the Florentine territory to the “flat”, once agricultural area between Florence and Sesto Fiorentino Monte Morello.
For villas and gardens continues until November 14 and allows free visits to a number of artistic treasures, first of all the Villa Corsini di Castello closed for years and is now open, fully restored, as Antiquarium by the National Archaeological Museum in Florence.
The villa, used as storage by the Archaeological, but has a Baroque facade hides a soul Renaissance.
Not far is exceptionally reopened after many years Montagnola Etruscan tomb, a burial tholos perfectly preserved. Staying near Castle complete the circuit of the Medici villas Petraia and Castle, best known but always pleasant for a revisit, especially in summer, when style garden and plant collections – remember the sensational citrus Villa di Castello – give their best.
The event includes two Small Museums museums permanent, the Richard Ginori Museum of Sesto Fiorentino, which reflects the legacy of Doccia and exhibit works around the famous Medici Venus, and then Palazzo Medici Riccardi, the first building of Lords of Florence.
For villas and gardens is proposed as a route that can be tackled individually, getting the special “card” which entitles you to free admission at all campuses – contact the individual museums or the information office of APT Firenze, Via Manzoni 16 .
