There’s a closely held secret in the heart of Florence, a place worth reverence but known to so few. The Museo Marino Marini is a stone’s throw away from piazza Santa Maria Novella, in the city centre but visited by little more than 7,000 people a year. The museum, dedicated entirely to Italy’s foremost 20th-century sculptor, is a bastion of contemporary art in Florence. So why do only a handful of people know of its existence? The Florentine recently ventured to the museum to explore this unique institution and learn more about its plans for the future.
