Tickets to access the Museum degli Innocenti, dedicated to the history of orphans, childhood and its collection of Renaissance art, available now at Weekendinitaly.com
FLORENCE, Italy, July 31, 2017 /CNW/ - Guided tours and special visits to the recently reopened Museum degli Innocenti, Florence, a museum dedicated to six centuries of care for orphans, the history of childhood and preservation of the rights of minors, as well as to safeguarding a collection of Renaissance art, are now available at WeekendinItaly.com.
Founded in 1419, built according to plans by Filippo Brunelleschi, the Ospedale degli Innocenti was created in order to care for orphaned children. With WeekendinItaly.com's tickets, travellers can discover the history and evolution of the Institute through biographies and personal memories of the orphans, the "Nocenti" (innocents). The museum includes a magnificent collection of Renaissance art works, such as the splendid Adoration of the Magi (1488) by Domenico Ghirlandaio, as well as works by Luca della Robbia, Piero di Cosimo, Sandro Botticelli and the Master of the Strauss Madonna.
Says Alessandro Naldi, Weekend in Italy Founder and CEO: "We are very happy to finally be able to offer tickets to the Museum degli Innocenti.
