Bardini Museum Wheelchair Accessible Tours
The museum is situated in a fine building refurbished by Stefano Bardini at the end of the 18th century and donated by its owner to the Municipal Administration of Florence in 1922.
Bardini was a famous art dealer who collected objects of different periods and of high quality.
Even the building itself is remarkable for its use of doors, windows and mouldings of old fragments originally belonging to ruined churches and villas.
The ceilings are magnificent examples of Venetian and Tuscany woodwork ranging from the 15th to the 17th.
The collection comprises sculptures, paintings, furniture pieces, ceramic pieces, tapestries but also fragments of the old center of Florence, salvaged before its destruction.
All these items are displayed on the ground and the first floors according to a layout that fully reflects the character of a typically private collection, with the touch of a rather suggestive setting at this Florence accessible tours Bardini Museum disabled excursions.
In addition to Roman sarcophagi, capitals, Roman and Gothic relief work, there are also other remarkable examples like the work of the Della Robbia brothers ( 15th and 16th century ), works attributed to Donatello and to Nino or Giovanni Pisano, in addition to the famous "Charity" by Tino di Camaino ( 1280 app.-1337 ).
The most outstanding painting of the collection is perhaps St Michael Archangel by Antonio Del Pollaiolo ( 1431-1498 ), although there are many other precious works among the collections of weapons, 15th century polychrome stuccoes and wooden sculpture.
