Very informative

We visited the newly remodeled museum this Spring and found it most informative, especially with the assistance of two excellent guides, who manage the facility. One gets a sense of the care given to the sick and orphans in Florence since the 1200s. Also, Florence was very early collecting vital statistics for the City.

The Misericordia's services are provided by volunteers, numbering 22,000 plus, if I remember right.

The Museum is not for everyone. But for someone interested in the history of social services, portage of the sick, a visit here is most informative.

A more complete picture of the remarkable history of social services in Florence since the Middle Ages can be had by also visiting the Loggia del Bigallo (across the street) and the newly remodeled and remarkable Ospedale degli Innocenti.
