Davanzati Museum, Florence
Located in the homonymous palazzo in Florence, the Davanzati Museum is a perfect example of 14th century Florentine residence.
The internal architecture and the wall decorations are typical of residences of that period, to the extent that the museum is also known as the Museum of the Ancient Florentine Home.
Among the objects displayed are carved and inlaid furniture, safes, decorated chests, tapestries, paintings, sculptures and ceramics.
The most precious pieces include a triptych by Lorenzo Monaco depicting a Madonna and Child with Saints and the round painting of The Game of Civettino, both from the 15th century, and the Bust of a Boy by Antonio Rossellino.
There is also an interesting exhibition of 14th to 18th century Italian and foreign textiles, lace, and embroideries and a collection of ceramics and majolica from the same period.
