Gucci Museum in Florence

The Gucci Museum

The Gucci Museum in Florence was inaugurated in 2011 on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the eponymous fashion house.
It tells the story of the Italian fashion and leather goods manufacturer, from its early start in the city of Florence to the global biggest-selling Italian brand that it is today.

The museum is located in the historic Palazzo della Mercanzia (Palace of the Merchandise) in Piazza della Signoria.

The Medici Chapels

The Medici Chapels consist of two structures that form part of the monumental complex of San Lorenzo, in Florence. They house monuments that belonged to members of the Medici family in the New Sacristy of the Church of San Lorenzo. This was the official church of the Medici when they lived as private residents in their palace in Via Larga (now via Cavour), and later became their mausoleum until the extinction of their line.

For several generations, the Medici family, of which author Dan Brown mentions in his latest book Inferno, had an outstanding reputation for promoting the arts, culture, spiritual ideas, as well as the scientific advancements of their time in the city of Florence and throughout Tuscany.

We are talking about Florence’s Stibbert Museum, where you will find a vast collection of ancient weapons and disparate art objects. Although Robert Langdon didn’t visit this place in Dan Brown’s Inferno, we are sure that the Harvard professor would have loved it very much.
