It is not enough known but it is an important museum for Florence. A long and accurate restorations work aimed at re-establishing the configuration which its founder, the antiquarian Stefano Bardini, had originally given the exhibition.

museo bardini ingressoStefano Bardini trained as a painter, became famous as a restorer and put together a collection of artwork with the love and passion for the Renaissance. Thanks to him, the keenness for Renaissance architectural decorations, for stucco sculptures and terracotta sculptures was rediscovered.

The original decorations of the rooms of the present-day Museum, which was actually the antiques showroom in Bardini’s times, can now be enjoyed. On account of its uniqueness, the blue color employed was imitated by many, including Jacquemart-Andrè  in Paris and Isabella Stewart in Boston.
Statues, paintings, decorated leather, old carpets, they are all parts of Bardini's taste and love for collectionism and restoration. 

Museo Stefano Bardini Via dei Renai, 37, Florence.
