Stibbert Museum, Florence

Museo Stibbert

The museum’s most interesting section is the suits of armour exhibit, which surpasses all the others in abundance, internationality and setting. Italian and German knights parade through the rooms fully clad in their suits of armour and arms, dating back to the 1500s and 1600s. The Japanese collection is the world’s biggest outside of Japan and includes samurai swords and armours. The painting area shows works by Sandro Botticelli, Carlo Crivelli, Domenico Beccafumi, Luca Giordano, Alessandro Allori, Pieter Brueghel the Young, Neri di Bicci and Pietro Lorenzetti.
