Palazzo Pitti - Tesoro dei Granduchi
- Piazza de' Pitti, Firenze
Formerly known as Silver Museum, is two floors and 25 rooms with finely carved reliquaries, gold, ivory and large and small cabinets holding the treasure of Salzburg brought to Florence by Ferdinand III of Lorraine, which went to increase the Medici’s already immeasurable treasure. The walls and ceilings of the rooms on the ground floor are lavishly decorated with 17th century frescoes. From the so-called Giovanni da San Giovanni room decorated for the Medici in the 1600s, it is a succession of trompe l’oeil with exotic animals and references to the scientific discoveries.
