Agt guides can suggest alternative tours to the more touristy classics. This itinerary starts at the Santa Maria Novella Station, which is an important example of modern Italian architecture by Giovanni Michelucci, that is often unfortunately undervalued. The next item is the 20th Century Museum housed in the renaissance complex of the ex-Hospital of St. Paul. It contains the civic collections of the 20th century. The museum leads one back through the 1980s to the beginning of the century and includes the remarkable Alberto della Ragione Collection, with paintings by Morandi, Guttuso, De Chirico, Casorati and the works donated to the city after the 1966 flood, so that a future international museum of contemporary art could be founded with works, among others, by Mirko Basaldella, Bruno Saetti, Corrado Cagli, Vinicio Berti and Gualtiero Nativi.
Your AGT guide will next lead you to the Marino Marini Museum, where sculpture and paintings donated by one of the 20th century’s most important artists have been admirably housed in the evocative, naturally luminous spaces of the ex-church of San Pancrazio. As you progress from one museum to the other, your AGT guide can show you a few architectural examples from the Liberty and Art Déco periods, a small number of which, but of admirable quality, can be found in Florence.
