Piazza della Signoria, Florence
Despite its name, the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo is not a music museum, but rather a museum of the extraordinary artwork that was commissioned by the Opera, or “building committee,” of Florence Cathedral. All the artwork contained in this museum was intended for or removed from the breathtaking cathedral across the street. It is my absolute favorite museum in Florence and is home to the amazing original bronze doors of Florence Baptistry, including Ghiberti’s “Gates of Paradise,” many of Donatello’s sculptural masterpieces, including his “Penitent Magdalene,” Michelangelo’s 2nd “Pietà,” and the beautiful “Cantorie” by Luca della Robbia and Donatello. Buona visita!
