VISITOR PLEASE NOTE

On 16 October the museum will close at 4.30 p.m. (last entry h. 3.45 p.m.)

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

From 13 September to 15 December 2019:
The botany of Leonardo. A vision of science bridging art and nature


The exhibition, set up in the evocative spaces of the monumental Santa Maria Novella complex, in the former Dormitory and Great Cloister, illustrates and explores Leonardo’s botanical discoveries (for example, he was the one that understood the connection between rings in the trunk and the age of the tree), and it takes us through the extraordinary sequence of his drawings of details, leaves and plants. Above all, it shows and demonstrates how art and science were inseparable for Leonardo: scientific knowledge is never just descriptive, painting is never just aesthetic. In a “systemic” vision where they wondered – and we continue to wonder centuries later – about the complex system of relationships between humans and nature.
