The Casa Martelli Museum in Florence (Museo di Casa Martelli) is a historic house with a family history going back to the days of the Medici, giving an authentic insight into a nobleman’s home. It has always remained within the same family and is the only museum-house in Florence that has not been refurbished by later owners. 

The Martelli’s were passionate art collectors and as a consequence Casa Martelli holds an impressive collection of paintings, with works from artists like Piero di Cosimo, Luca Giordano, and Domenico Beccafumi. 

A number of rooms are decorated with frescoes that apply the trompe l’oeil effect, most notably the Sala Giardino d’Inverno (Winter Garden Room), which was to make up for the fact that the house did not have an actual outside garden.
