The Bargello Museum is located in a palace built between 1340 and 1345 as a medieval fort. The building became the first seat of the Florentine Republic, in which Dante Alighieri played a role. It was later converted into a prison and a place where public executions took place and finally also used as a convent.
The museum we know today is home to a huge number of artworks, mostly sculptures, statues and bas-reliefs by the greatest Florentine Renaissance artists such as Donatello, Ghiberti, Brunelleschi, Giambologna, Benvenuto Cellini, Luca and Andrea della Robbia, Mino da Fiesole, Desiderio da Settignano and some early works by Michelangelo. All this on display in a beautiful fourteenth-century frame.
