Highlights Museo Casa Buonarroti

  • Archaeological hall: Among the Casa Buonarroti collections, a collection of great value is the archaeological collection. The core consists of about one hundred and fifty pieces, of civilizations, eras, typologies, techniques and very different dimensions. 
  • Derivations from Michelangelo: The hall testifies as a whole the fortune that had the graphic, pictorial and sculptural inventions of Michelangelo during the sixteenth century. 
  • Collections of Buonarroti: The direct descendants of Michelangelo, who inhabited this palace for centuries, collected works of art from different periods and genres. The main increments of the collections are referred to Michelangelo Buonarroti the Younger (1568-1647). In this room there are the pieces that cannot be moved for conservation reasons (the valuable collection of Robbiane) and those whose exact seventeenth-century position is not known (paintings and pottery). 
  • Exhibition space: The sequence of rooms on the left of the atrium of the Casa Buonarroti is used, since 1984, for temporary exhibitions. The exhibitions are held annually, on topics related to Michelangelo and the cultural, artistic and memories of the Casa Buonarroti.
