  • Go to Pisa and not visit the Museum is really a shame. housed in the residence of the Court ordered by Francesco I de ' Medici. The building incorporated other existing buildings, including the Tower of golden rod where Galileo did observe the Grand Duke, with his telescope, Jupiter's moons. There are works from their collections to which you are then added to private donations. There are rare Medici tapestries, artwork of Florentine and Flemish workshops and a collection of armor used during the traditional game of bridge, exposes the furniture and clothes, paintings, including works by Raphael, Bronzino, Rosso Fiorentino and Antonio Canova. Interesting pencil portraits of characters pisani, miniatures, portraits of noble women of the era and much more. We were lucky enough to meet a guide, Mr. Andrew, who spoke non-stop throughout the visit, in a manner so addictive and understood by you to think almost to live in those times to increase, if it were possible, our already immense curiosity. And want to know. A place to visit.

  • Abstract: not a big fan of museums. However, as a tourist, I decided to visit this museum the same. Inside, hot as hell. The captions of the various elements of the collection have been completely replaced by QRcode. Although I love technology, this is a rather awkward to enjoy the content of the Museum. I can't comment about the exhibits, not being an expert in the field.
