The BeGo – Benozzo Gozzoli Museum was recently built. It was born to host the frescoes of two roadside tabernacles – detached at the end of 1960s, restored and kept in Florence waiting for a new place of conservation. Nowadays it’s a centre for the study and promotion of Valdelsa heritage, with a particular focus on the theme of accessibility. You can explore paths and deepen Italian and Florentine Renaissance through the paintings and the preparatory sketches for the tabernacles of the Visitation and the one of the Madonna of the Cough, enjoying the artistic experience as a way of increasing your quality of life.
The Benozzo Gozzoli Museum is a unique one as for its artworks. The artistic context is the one of Florentine Renaissance – therefore the first steps of Renaissance itself – as you can see from the religious scenes and themes represented on the frescoes and sketches. The museum is a small-sized one: in fact, a central wide hall hosts the artworks. You can reach the first floor by a staircase or a lift, allowing you to watch the frescoes much closer and deeper. Thanks to the museum size, there are no distractions and sensory variations, like background noises or overcrowding. Here the caregiver is asked to accompany the visitor next to the tabernacles to watch the paintings.
