What to see

The Monumental Complex of Santa Maria Novella comprises the majestic basilica and the adjacent Civic Museum hosted in the former convent's cloisters and the rooms giving onto them, including the Spanish Chapel, the Ubriachi Chapel and the imposing refectory showcasing a selection of dazzling vestments and furnishings from the basilica's treasury. Erected in the 13th century and enlarged down the ages, this Dominican complex still hosts such masterpieces as a Crucifix painted by Giotto, Masaccio's Trinity, a Crucifix carved by Brunelleschi and a cycle of frescoes in the Green Cloister illustrating Stories from Genesis, including in particular Paolo Uccello's celebrated depiction of the Flood.

On April 17th 2017 three new areas of the complex will officially become part of the museum: the magnificent Great Cloister and the Northern Dormitory, while the Papa Chapel will be open only on weekends as part of the guided tours organized by Mus.e

Exhibitions and Events

La Botanica di Leonardo. Per una nuova scienza tra Arte e Natura

13 settembre - 15 dicembre 2019
Un dodecaedro e un albero di gelso: un’installazione alta sei metri presenta la mostra "La botanica di Leonardo".

Una grande struttura accoglie i visitatori di Piazza della Signoria, una nuova presenza temporanea posizionata tra i capolavori del Rinascimento fiorentino, a pochi passi da Palazzo Vecchio, dalla Statua equestre di Cosimo I e dalla fontana del Nettuno. Un grande simbolo – alto sei metri – che anticipa e presenta i contenuti della mostra La botanica di Leonardo. Per una nuova scienza tra Arte e Natura. L’esposizione, che prenderà il via il prossimo 13 settembre a Firenze nel Museo di Santa Maria Novella, è un tassello fondamentale nel percorso che la città ha dedicato alle celebrazioni leonardiane
