  • Is a small museum, but there are works very nice, including the maximum is the Christ in sorrow of Masolino da Panicale, ask to see the della Robbia pottery on the first floor of the cloister. Is also expected to be taken to visit the Gothic church of Santo Stefano degli Agostiniani (which usually is closed), very nice and where there is also a fresco by Masolino just restored. Please note that Sunday afternoon at Empoli museums are free.

  • The Museum is rich in works of the Tuscan school, from Masolino to Botticini. The original is very elegant baptismal font attributed to Rossellino.

  • I didn't enclose itself works of end value and wealth. Precious fresco by Masolino, so the canvas of Lippi, but lesser-known artists, but equally valuable, are enjoyable in the halls of the first floor. Wonderful the Tabernacle by Rossellino. Needless to go further in the description of the various works, some really old (we speak of 1200) since it is right that everyone will appreciate the surprise. In this quiet, friendly girl in greeting and a price in decidedly paltry progress make it even more enjoyable experience.

  • Some stunning 14th and 15th century Tuscan paintings. A hidden gem.
  • The Museum of the Collegiate Church of Empoli was invented in the mid-19th century and is therefore one of the oldest ecclesiastical museums of Italy. The works are arranged according to a political science-scientific. The Baptistry, where they gathered all the frescoes in the Museum (including the masterpiece by Masolino depicting Christ in Mercy) and was carved the impressive baptismal font attributed to Bernardo Rossellino, you pass in the second room designed for sculptures. The Gallery is housed on the upper floor, where the paintings are arranged chronologically. The third Hall brings together the older works, from altarpiece of the anonymous artist from Pistoia named master of 1336 to interesting products of the Florentine workshops, active between the late 14th and early 15th century. In the fourth room displays works fully with fifteenth-century masterpieces like the two triptychs of Lorenzo Monaco and little Majesty of Filippo Lippi. In the fifth Hall, next to the Tabernacle of San Sebastiano di Francesco Botticini and Antonio Rossellino, gathered all the works of Botticini, whose workshop was active until the early decades of the sixteenth century. In the living room, dominated by the Tabernacle of the sacrament of Francis and Raphael Botticini, tardoquattrocentesche, and other works finally follow those already in the seventeenth century.

  • Empoli is hardly a cultural or tourist destination although it may find unexpected treasures is the collegiate church is in nearby Pontorme, the birthplace to Jacopo da Pontormo. If you are in the area worth visiting. Even Bill Viola was inspired by the Pietà by Masolino.
