Visitors may touch ten famous artworks realized in different materials (bronze, marble, wood, semi-precious stones, plaster, baked clay, majolica), works which represent some crucial passages and changes in the art of sculpture from the 19th century to the first decade of the 20th century

From Room n. 2 to Room n. 30 visitors may touch ten famous artworks realized in different materials (bronze, marble, wood, semi-precious stones, plaster, baked clay, majolica), works which represent some crucial passages and changes in the art of sculpture  from the 19th century to the first decade of the 20th century. Audioguides aimed at easing the comprehension of the works - realized by BassmArt of Bassilichi Group - are also available at the entrance of the museum (please, ask the staff for their use). Nearby the works are some plexiglass stands purchased by “Lions Club of Florence - Impruneta - San Casciano” which support information panels printed both in braille and in easy reading fonts for the partially sighted.
