  • Randomly visited here. It's the former home of the Martelli family who had connections with the Pucci and Medici families. It has only been open a few years after restoration. When we visited there we...  more »

  • In recent years the immense artistic and cultural heritage of Florentia are adding little touches to be missed. This is the case of casa Martelli which undoubtedly it is a smaller Museum but at the same time offers a visit absolutely interesting. The House is, as the name implies, the famous House of hammers. The founder's original Ghetto hammer valdisieve arrived in Florence in 1300 and settled in via swordsmith. The family then very numerous remained in that area where it still lies the beautiful House. During the rivalry between the Albizzi and Medici hammers rallied alongside Cosimo and alongside of the House remained for a long time. Even a Hammers, Camilla, married morganatically on old Cosimo I after the death of the great Eleonora di Toledo. An important member of the family was John, friend of Donatello which graved the family crest, the Gryphon who is everywhere in the House and probably the sarcophagus of the family Chapel in San Lorenzo in hammers. A curiosity, from inside the House there is a secret passage that leads to San Lorenzo. The century's most notable family was perhaps the 600 's. Marco Martelli founded in Rome an exchange company expanding the wealth of the family. It was him who built the Palace in the place where it is located. The family, think about it, coming up to the present day with Catherine Martelli, who passed away in 1987 and donated the House to the Church. In 2009 then went to the municipality which finally opened this beautiful Museum, the building is very large, presents a fair picture gallery and many rooms, some of them decorated with the technique of trompe l'oeil. Note the beautiful ballroom, coffee room and lounge music. One of the rooms has a fresco of the morganatic marriage between the now-old Cosimo I and Camilla Martelli with behind Palazzo Pitti that hasn't reached the current extension. After the tour we livened up a beautiful mini concert performed by students from high school musical. This beautiful building outside the usual sightseeing deserves at least a visit.

  • A charming House-Museum. Trompe l'oeil rooms leave you breathless. Wonderful even the yellow drawing room, decorated in silk and decorated with a representation of 4 continents. Admission is free. Although not one of the most famous sights of Florence, is certainly one of the most interesting!
