Description

A long tradition of political and cultural exchanges with the Orient between the Middle Ages and the 20thth century has brought to Florence a number of works of art of exceptional value produced by the Medieval and Renaissance Islamic world, which also influenced the local artistic production. The San Gallo Archeology Laboratories has written a new guide to Florence to introduce to the tourist or the curious Florentine, the long history which connects Florence to the Middle Eastern Mediterranean world as told by the collections of splendid Islamic artifacts which, since the era of the Medici, have been part of the heritage of the city and are now the prized possessions of the main Florentine museums.
