Museo Novecento

The story of the Spedale di San Paolo is a beautiful one: long, tormented but with a happy ending. Built in the mid-13th century to accommodate pilgrims arriving in the city, in 1588 it was transformed into a convalescent home, while in 1780 Grand Duke Leopold wanted it to be a school for poor girls, in implementation of his enlightened reforms. After the Second World War, during which it was used as a collection centre for prisoners waiting to leave for European concentration camps, the complex was turned into a municipal school. Today, after years of neglect and lengthy restoration work, this old building houses the Museo Novecento. Here you can admire a selection of more than three hundred works of Italian art, arranged in a journey backwards from the nineties to the beginning of the twentieth century. Like in a time machine, paintings, sculptures, videos, installations and documents tell the story of an unrepeatable artistic season that saw Florence once again play a leading role on the international cultural scene.
