The Stibbert Museum is one of the most fascinating and unexpected places in Florence.
In a home museum planned by its owner, Frederick Stibbertand
displayed in an exciting and richly scenographic arrangement,
are the exceptional collections that Stibbert left to the city after his death.
The collection mostly contains weapons, but also objects of art and of daily life of European,
Islamic and Far East, especially Japanese, civilization.
It is a witness to the taste and intelligence of an individual, and together, represents the synthesis of the highest cultural values of the last century:
interest in the past, exaltation of art and love of the exotic.
