All reviews santa croce via ghibellina earliest works collection includes interesting visit michelangelo sculptures interesting place small museum on display visiting florence battle master beliefs art enthusiasts genius guard
A short distance from Santa Croce but away from the crowd on the plaza, Casa Buonarroti is a haven of peace. Sleepy guards barely watch while you walk through the rooms. The frescoes and ceilings are lovely as can be expected. A pleasurable visit.
The house was owned, but never inhabited, by the great artist and now is converted to the museum dedicated to his work. The collection includes few of his earliest works, but more importantly this is the huge archive of his drawings, letters and sketches. For...More
This house was built by Michelangelo's family AFTER his death. There are a few art pieces from Michelangelo's youth, a lot of paintings OF Michelangelo, some rooms decorated with period artwork and a room with lamps/pottery/statuary from ancient times.
One room is covered with large...More
This museum is the house where Michelangelo was used to live and die for many years and this townhouse was turned into museum by his great grandson with many paintings, sculptures, and relics related to this great artist of all time. You also
The house has been restored to the way it looked when his family owned it, so the rooms themselves are worth seeing. There are several of Michelangelo's clay models for large statues that he made later using marble. Of special interest are two small reliefs...More
Somewhat off the beaten track (or perhaps we were lucky to be alone there). This house was owned for a short time by Michaelangiello. It is filled with some of his art (see the Madona of the Stairs) and other's as well. But it was...More
Taking a side street north from Santa Croce Church, we made a serendipitous discovery, a non-descript house with a sign "Casa Buonarroti". That's Michelangelo's family name. And when we entered, we learned that this was the location of the home where the famous artist grew...More
My artist-art-teacher husband loved this smallish house museum. It's an out-of-the-way place belonging, at one time, to THE Michelangelo’s great nephew. It's filled with Michelangelo's studies and works that had moldered in a closet for over a hundred years, which his nephew collected and lovingly...More
If you are a Michelangelo fan then this is a must to visit. It is a small museum but they are a number of interesting pieces on display. The bronze model of the Pieta Bandini is definitely worth seeing. There are 2 sculptures of Michelangelo...More
I really enjoyed my visit to this place! A humble house with much history. Very well designed with many interesting items on display: some Michelangelo works, but mostly art collected by the Michelangelo family over the years, and also many interesting displays and memorabilia telling...More
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.
