The Marino Marini Museum is in the historic centre of Florence, between Via della Vigna Nuova and Piazza Santa Maria Novella, inside the spectacular rooms of the former church of San Pancrazio, founded before the year 1000, deconsecrated in 1809 and used for different purposes for over a century.

The museum conserves 180 of Marino Marini’s (1901-1980) artworks, donated at different times by the sculptor and his wife Marina: there are sculptures, paintings, drawings and engravings.

They are ordered thematically rather than chronologically, intending for the theme to be more of a state of mind rather than an iconographic subject: it all revolves around the majestic equestrian group of Aja (1957-58), found in the centre of the ancient liturgical space and immersed in natural light from the large apse window.  

The museum is split into four floors, each one presenting a different perspective on the great bronze and plaster works of the artist.
