Tip
An oasis of calm compared to the larger museums

Museo Marino Marini in Florence aims to conserve, protect and promote the work by the Italian sculptor and painter Marino Marini. Space is also dedicated to events and exhibitions of contemporary artists, from the 20th century to the current day.

Marino Marini (1901-1980) was most famous for his series of statues featuring a man with outstretched arms on a horse. His works can be found in many cities and art collections, among which the Tate Collection and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. The museum displays 182 sculptures, paintings, drawings and engravings by Marini, arranged not in a chronological order but thematically.

The museum is housed in the San Pancrazio church, which has been deconsecrated with the exception of the Rucellai Chapel. The first recorded history of the church is from 931, after which it has been restored, modified and enlarged many times. The Rucellai Chapel contains the Rucellai Sepulchre, a small but impressive funerary chapel from the 15th century. The chapel can be visited from inside the museum.
