The Buonarroti family home was built between 1546 and 1553 - Michelangelo, the most illustrious representative of this family, wanted to enlarge it and entrusted its execution to a nephew, but nothing was finished when the artist died.

It was donated to the city of Florence in 1858 and now houses a museum dedicated to the work of Micheangelo.

The museum contains only a few rare works by the artist, but the rooms are nicely furnished and the walls are decorated with frescoes. The visit allows you to soak up the atmosphere of a small 17th century palace.
