The Duomo museum, my private tour
The New Duomo Museum is a clear example of a "well-done job ".
Hundreds of works from 1300 to 1800 that are wonderfully well accommodated in a house designed and in a modern way, giving much importance to those who visit the new museum.
Modern high-quality spaces supporting ancient high-quality works.
The "New" Duomo museum
All of us were looking forward to the reopening of the museum after a long period of restoration of the interior. The museum reopened at the end of October 2015 and our expectations were more than fulfilled, the museum is without doubt one of the most beautiful in Florence: “ over 750 works of art covering 720 years of history “
The restoration has affected not only the halls of the museum but also many works already present in the old museum.
The touching "Main Room"
On a side of this room, you can admire a reconstruction of the old original facade of the Duomo (removed in 1587 from the Duomo) with about 40 original pieces !!
On the opposite side of the same room you can see the originals of:
-East door of the Baptistery, know as the Paradise Gate (by Lorenzo Ghiberti). That means that the 3 sisters, North door, East door of the Baptistery and the old original facade of the Duomo can look each other again after centuries of separation!
Do you miss Michelangelo or Donatello?
Few steps away from Michelangelo's Pietà we will admire an incredibly moving wooden Mary Magdalene by Donatello.
Not yet enough? Do you ask for more? Ok!
You have heard that the marble reliefs and the statues on the Giotto's Bell Tower are only copies and you would like to see the original, well, in this museum you can see them all, restored and displayed.
In short words, the Duomo museum is able to enhance the artworks of hundreds of years ago in a modern museum concept.
