  • I believe this church like many churches in Florence lovely Baroque that is not a genre I prefer, but the Tuscan Baroque represented by this church I must say it is really nice because not too heavy like the traditional kind! Church rich in frescoes and great sculptures inside, to see very carefully, besides this church is not so famous.

  • Once it was dedicated to San Michele Arcangelo, in 1490 was named San Michele degli Antinori. In the middle of the façade there is the family crest Antinori cast iron painted in grey. In 1553 it passed to the Olivetans, and in 1592 the Theatines, which you annexed a large convent dedicated to San Gaetano Thiene, big operator of the Catholic Reformation. The statues of the two Saints are in two niches on the façade dominated at the top by the Medici coat of arms, because it was built thanks to the Grand Duke Ferdinando I and Cardinal Carlo de ' Medici, his son.
