Introduction

Frederick Stibbert was the son of an English family who grew up with the railways in motherland, and like many Englishmen of the nineteenth century, was in love with Florence. Many of them lived in the city, flowery, beautiful and rich in art. Now it's dirty, not flowery, it's badly kept but always full of art when available, but that's another story. Stibbert is a patron lover of war history, and beggan to collect armor, rifles, swords mainly from three distinct areas: Europe, the Islamic world and Japan. The most advanced countries in the art of war and in the construction of deadly weapons. He bought a villa belonged to Davanzati family, in the whole and exterior refurbishment he created a four hectare park divided into thematic areas according to the taste of the period.



The museum

It is divided into three main sections in which there are paintings, ceramics, porcelains, costumes, furniture, bronzes and medals as well as weapons and armor all representing the evolution and the search for the best in the war. Particularly beautiful are the halls of the caves where mannequins on horses and horses are lined with original armor, giving life to a real "photo" of 15th-16th century warriors. The English-style garden passes through the surrounding woods with paths, points of view and quiet corners. Most of the tall trees are holm oaks, horse chestnuts, pines and lime trees with some cypress trees. Some trees are prior to the construction of the garden. In an artificial pond, an Egyptian-style temple with a "romantic" taste is obtained. At the death of the magante, everything was donated to the city that could benefit citizens and visitors from every continent. Be careful, the whole collection is made up of 50,000 pieces and make this private museum, unique in the world. Absolutely not to be missed! To get there from the city, from the station square, SMN station, side bus shelter take bus # 3.
