Museo di Palazzo Davanzati

Museo di Palazzo Davanzati

Originally built in the mid-14th century for the Davizzi family and then acquired by the Davanzati in the 15th century, the palace is an extraordinary example of a 14th-century Florentine house, with some interesting interior architecture and mural decorations with geometric motifs that were typical of the age.

Furniture, paintings, tapestries and domestic objects give a good overall picture of what an upper-class Florentine home would have been like between the 14th and 17th centuries; there are also many paintings with secular and religious themes, sculptures and a collection of ceramics and majolicas from various manufactories.

The sidewalk is connected to the street level at the entrance. The staff needs to be contacted in advance (there is no doorbell) in order to position the mobile ramp by the main entrance. There is a rise of about 12 cm/4,7 in and a drop of 6 cm/2,4 in (raised threshold).

Doors have push openings. The compatible elevator (the door is 80 cm/ 2,6 ft. wide) can take you to the first floor, and, upon reservation, on the upper floors. All the passages between the rooms have raised thresholds: better to be accompanied. Toilets for disabled people are on the ground floor and on the upper floor.

A tactile tour is available for people with visual disabilities: visitors can touch pieces of furniture and decorations of this ancient Florentine house.
