Museo di Storia Naturale dell'Università di Firenze - Anthropology and Ethnology

The Museum was founded in 1869 by the anthropologist Paolo Mantegazza who pursued the intent to collect the testimonies of human diversity: 18 rooms display prestigious and rich ethnographic collections, a document of great importance of the world's cultures.

There are objects of all kinds that illustrate the customs and traditions of various peoples: clothes, clothing accessories, ornaments and jewels; architectural elements, boats, idols and amulets; offense, defense and hunting weapons; tools for agricultural production, for fishing and for domestic life; home furnishing objects; musical instruments; liturgical objects of different cults; books, paintings and manuscripts. The oldest collections date back to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. They come from the collections of the Medici family who gathered refined objects from the New World.
