Florence hides many unexpected jewels, but they take time for the visitor to find, visit and savour. One of these is the Indian Museum, an anthropology and ethnology section of the Natural History Museum, which was founded by Paolo Mantegazza and belongs to the University of Florence. Housed since 1937 in the Palazzo Nonfinito at via Proconsolo 12, the collection features many religious bronzes of Indian divinities, ivories including erotic pieces from the Thanjavur Kingdom, sculptures, jewellery, games, ceramics and fabrics. Photographs dating to the late 1800s and early 1900s are also displayed. Added to all this, the Mantegazza Collection depicts the daily life of the impoverished.
