Museo Marino Marini - Firenze

Museo Marino Marini
We went to the Museo Marino Marini, Piazza San Pancrazio today. As we entered it became obvious that he was the same artist who created the famous “Angelo della Città” sculpture at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice, which we had seen years earlier. The sculpture at the Guggenheim was installed in 1948 and faces the Grand Canal.

The Marini museum is interesting for the sculpture and the space that the museum is in. It was an old church. The way they retrofitted the space was what I was interested in. Don’t miss the basement (crypt) because there is usually an exhibit down there and it is an interesting space.

For more information on Marino Marini, see this Wikipedia page.
