 The Marini Museum 


Address: Piazza San Pancrazio
In the heart of Florence, between Strozzi Palace and Santa Maria Novella, unexpected and surprisingly one comes across the Marini Museum.
 
The long, alternate matter concerning S. Pancrazio was concluded in the autumn of 1988 with the opening of a Museum, which successfully joins old and new. The city and the world passing through it recover a historical building through a fine and well thought out restoration and acquire the first contemporary art Museum in Florence.
 
The Museum contains 176 works of Marino Marini, one of the most important sculptors of the twentieth century (1901-1980). There are sculptures, paintings, drawings and incisions donated on different occasions by the artist and his wife Marina. Their arrangement is of subject nature rather than chronological, fixing as a theme a mood rather than an iconographical subject: it revolves round an imposing equestrian group, from The Hague (1957-1958), placed in the centre of the old liturgical space and immersed in the light of a destroyed apse.
 
Marino considered that natural light was an essential element for the interpretation of his work: the criterium is fully granted and put to fruit in the Museum, where every sense of separation from the outside world is almost dispelled. There are numerous points of observation and so a solution has been found for the artist's aversion towards "the work on the pedestal", a concept which is not at all far from the Marinian poetic expression.
