  • Passing through Florence I visited this Museum opened recently. To be honest I expected more having previously visited Naples. Here the wheel no longer exists and modern installations make up somewhat for the lack of antique environments not restored. Still worth a visit just to see the signs of recognition of abandoned children and to listen to the stories of some of the children who passed by here.

  • Florence, as early as 1400 (while in the rest of Europe raged barbarian customs) had thought about the problem of abandoned children. The Hotel Brunelleschi is astounding, crisp, stylish and functional and defines what will be the new Renaissance style: plaster and sandstone. The recent restoration is very nice, respectful of the past but also capable of basic, functional modern works. Inside the emotion is great: a thread of history it is tied to the broken jewelry left by mothers who leave their children. Collection of works of art of great beauty and ... Finally ... a bar on a terrace with breathtaking views of Florence. Together with the Opera del Duomo Museum, this museum is becoming a must ....

  • The Istituto Degli Innocenti is a ' historical instruction which the Florentines are particularly fond of his centuries-old shelter for abandoned children and mothers. The Museum was inaugurated a few months ago. The entrance has a proper price, 7 €. The visit is divided into several parts, on the ground floor there is the historical part, both from an architectural point of view (the building was started by Brunelleschi, then move on to Andrea della Luna, both in terms of acceptance and of the changes that have taken place over the centuries in the management of the Institute. In the last room of this section, you will find cassattine with the name and date of birth of children, containing the "signs" that is, small objects that mothers left to children, as a sign of recognition, hoping eventually to return to reprise the piccolino. It was often of children born to single mothers, but also poor families who already had many sons and couldn't keep them. Upstairs is the artistic part, with various works of art belonging to the Institute or that were located in the old church. In this section I hit especially the adoration of the Magi by Ghirlandaio. At the bottom of the path are the forms of children in diapers glassy terracotta by Andrea Della Robbia, recently restored to the Factory of earrings, very interesting video that shows the various stages of restoration. Finally, before leaving, passed from the rooftop terrace where is coffee.

  • Very happy I made to visit. You won't be disappointed
  • Beautiful. Modern equipment in a place so ancient. There are also movies and photos that tell a clear story about this place. On the top floor a bar whose if talks ever with a view of Florence. At the bar you can access without going to the Museum

  • Reopened to the public on 23 June and you will be speechless after visiting this place of memories and lives but most of mercy. This is the year of Mercy through Pope and here you will find the essence of this word that has made gestures and care, without which, many innocent lives would not have flourished for miseries and misdeeds of others. Come and experience something truly exciting and a share of the restoration of the Putti by Andrea Della Robbia. In front of you will find not only a huge work of art but an immense work of motherly love.

  • New production: on the ground floor the history of orphanages in Florence. Good teaching, modern media still being finished. On the upper floors of interesting materials and especially the views of the original architecture and ceramics of the hospital.
