Marino Marini Museum and the Rucellai Chapel in Florence
The Italian sculptor Marino Marini is undoubtedly one of the most interesting figures of Italian culture and arts of 1900. His works are held in many inportant Italian museums, from Venice to Milan, but it's in Florence where we can find the biggest part of Marini's collection. The Museum created in the former Church of San Pancrazio is in fact named after Marino Marini and presents many sculptures of the Tuscan artist, stressing the attention on his main "artistic obsession" the Horse and the Horsemen.
But Marino Marini Museum is also famous for the Rucellai Chapel, originally inside the Church of San Pancrazio, recently restored and opened again to the public; it contains a masterpiece of 1300 of Leon Battista Alberti: the Tempietto del Santo Sepolcro.
