  • Part of the convent of San Salvi, one of the oldest in the city of Florence, located in the countryside, the cenacolo di andrea del sarto is perhaps one of the most beautiful areas of the city and the culmination of a long tradition. Inspired by the Gospel of John. The Museum also other works: Sogliani, Franciabigio, Ghirlandaio besides rsdti the tomb of Saint giovanni gualberto. The peculiarity are the heads of the brothers at the hands of Napoleonic soldiers

  • Although fiorentino, I became aware of this place just several weeks ago and was impressed by both the masterpiece of Andrea Del Sarto, Pontormo's paintings, but also other information slips, etc. Although outside the historic center, I highly recommend it, you can reach by car, is only opened up at 13.50 and admission is free.

  • It is well worth the time to seek out this small museum on the outskirts of Florence to view the wonderful cenacola of Andrea del Sarto. Other works are on display, but we came for the cenacola and it...  more »

  • This is a hidden gem in Florence. The last supper here is amazing and for free!
  • A glorious Last Supper along with a wonderful small collection of artworks in the adjacent gallery.
  • Out of center museum , worth the walk to see the Andrea del Sarto's fresco
  • Ok
  • Impressive and unexpected container Museum, which, far from the most acclaimed museums, amazes and displaces to the uniqueness of the pieces on display and embedded to it. The Museum of San Salvi is derived from adjacent rooms of the Abbey; located in the Champ de Mars, in the stadium area, within walking distance of piazza Alberti. The heart of the small museum is definitely the big Conventual refectory painted by Andrea del Sarto with the scene of the last supper. The large painting, is located on the back wall of the refectory opposite the entrance, and occupies the entire upper wall log, under the Arch of time. In the arch, between grotesques and panels, there are five medallions--created by the artist, even before the main theme-depicting: San Giovanni Gualberto, San Salvi, the Trinity (Center, instead of the more traditional Crucifixion), St. Bernardino of Umberti and San Benedetto. The work, considered one of the greatest masterpieces of the artist, was built between 1520 and 1526. The task, he was entrusted by Abbot directly since 1511, great admirer and friend of the vallombrosan Ilario Panichi, artist. Andrea del Sarto, as noted, was strongly influenced by the work of Leonardo and-as in the upper room milanese in Santa Maria alle Grazie di Leonardo-here, del Sarto, freezes the scene when Jesus announces to his Apostles that one of them will betray him and John, alarmed, he asks:>. It must be said that, over the centuries, was consolidated, in Florence, a strong tradition artistitica on the subject of numerous paintings and between the circles located in the Florentine and Tuscan monasteries in General, that of Andrea del Sarto in San Salvi is believed to be the point of coming up taller and surely among the most original episodes for composition and chromatics odattati by the artist! In the Museum, among the various "pieces" of great interest, artists like Pontormo, Franciabigio and "rediscovered" nun-painter Plautilla Nelli, besides the presence of the impressive monumental fireplace, it should be noted the wonderful stone sink against the the south wall of the antechamber of the refectory; the work of the famous sculptor Benedetto da Rovezzano, appears as a kind of puppet theatre from the curtain opened to reveal the calibrated sculptural composition that also encompasses the washbasin. A small sculptures of great finesse enforceable! Really special! In this small suburban Museum, always neat and quiet, you can gaze serenely works, immersed in the utmost stillness; don't you never, the crowd of visitors, often typical of the most famous sites of the city! A real Pearl ... considering that admission is free!
