Overview

Set in the beautiful Tuscan countryside of Rufina, the Renaissance Villa of Poggio Reale now houses a museum dedicated to the twentieth century Florentine artist Mario Romoli. Known for his important public pieces such as the mural painting in the station of Santa Maria Novella in Florence (1936), and the large fresco in Piazza della Calza Porta Romana, Romoli also produced many paintings and drawings ranging from Tuscan landscapes and portraits to the highly symbolic. With his fiercely uncompromising and polemical character, Romoli often lashed out at his critics and the laws that were increasingly dominating the market. He was passionate of the multiple expressions of man's intelligence and creativity, from art and literature to philosophy and science, forever attracted by the mysteries of the universe. This humanistic vision produced technological inventions also documented in the museum. As of 2013, with the opening of this museum, the public can now get to know and appreciate the works of this Tuscan master.

The villa itself is beautiful. Plus when you look out the windows you are presented with Tuscan countryside and a driveway lined with cypruses (like something from a movie). Then the art of Mario Romelli is interesting - he has a range of styles that...More

I visited initially because I wanted to see the villa - being an architect and delighting in historic buildings in Tuscany. I loved the approach up the iconic cypress lined drive with the villa at the top. It was good to be able to see...More

Visited with friends. A local treasure, both the building and its contents, where the life of the artist is a mirror of much of Italy's history in the mid 19th century.

An interesting personal collection paintings by a notable Tuscan artist who deserves to be more widely known. A visit to the museum is also an opportunity to explore Villa di Poggio Reale and view the countryside around it. Friendly multilingual volunteer guides. Limited opening hours...More
