It would be easy to miss the Marini museum, sandwiched as it is between two of Florence’s busiest and most elegant streets, Via della Vigna and Via della Spada (where shops such as Gucci, Roberto Cavalli, Dolce and Gabbana, Ferré are found). There is nothing to proclaim its presence in the de-consecrated church of San Pancrazio, one of the oldest in Florence, with foundations dating back to the 10th century. Its entrance is guarded by stone lions, there are massed cars and motorini to obstruct your approach and no queues of tourists to draw it to your attention. But that would be your loss, for once you cross the threshold, you enter a wonderful, airy, light-filled space, silent and far removed from the bustle of the city. It gives you a sense of being outside time, free to make the kind of discoveries about art and life that can make the world a better place. It’s there you can enjoy and meditate upon the work of a single artist, Marino Marini.
