Piazza Giacomo Matteotti, 15

The Venturino Venturi Museum in Loro Ciuffenna is located in the former home of the sculptor Venturi, who born right here in this village in the Valdarno in 1918. The house that the artist built at the end of the 1960s today hosts his works, an Archive, photo library, media library and periodicals.

The works are on display in various rooms, notably the atelier, preserved exactly as it was when the sculptor worked there. Visitors can admire a set of bronze sculptures known as The Ancestors, the bronze Seated Woman and the original cement bust of the architect Giovanni Michelucci.

The museum also has a patio from which visitors can admire a view of the Ciuffenna creek and the old water mill that still operates today.
