la rocca di Campi Bisenzio

Museum of Sacred Art in San Donnino

A collection of artworks and liturgical furnishings from churches in the area

Campi Bisenzio
The museum is located in the 13th century arcade and in some of the rooms of the refectory, which is adjacent to the Sant’Andrea church. The church was built sometime between the 1100s and 1200s, though it had been remodeled and enlarged several times over the centuries.

The collection gathers and safeguards the rich historical and artistic patrimony of the two ancient churches of Sant’Andrea and San Donnino, thereby promoting the close connection of these churches and the surrounding territory and its history. The museum visit concludes with a view of the 15th century artworks located in the church: a fresco by Ghirlandaio, a painting on wood by Botticini, and a crucifix by Giovanni di Francesco.

The museum is also part of a Centre of Art and Culture that boasts additional exhibition space and didactic workshops. The centre aims to be not only an instrument to help better conserve and promote artworks but also a meeting point for educational institutions in the area.
