Tours / MUSEUM NOVECENTO: THE FLOURISHING FLORENCE OF THE 20TH CENTURY

Finally after 50 years, Florence has its own Museum of the Twentieth century!

What an amazing building! In a very famous place of the city of Florence for its glorious past of human charity: the Hospital of St. Paul or the Leopoldine. From "Spitale" for pilgrims, it was converted into a school for poor girls- one of the first schools for girls in the world at all, under the Grand Duke Peter Leopold of Habsburg, in the eighteenth century, which is why "Leopoldine" is the name of the school.

In the museum of Novecento paintings, sculptures, videos, and documents cover a unique period from an artistic point of view, a period that saw Florence as one of the most flourishing centers of the world. The museum houses 300 works in 15 modern showrooms. The exhibition respects the Renaissance complex of Michelozzo, architect of the Medici, a journey back from contemporary works to those of the early 900.

To make it an even more exciting experience, the atmosphere of specific time periods was recreated through music, cinema and literature to make the works live again.

Some prominent names are present in the Museum: Giorgio De Chirico, Giorgio Morandi, Emilio Vedova, Guttuso, and Maurizio Nannucci.
