About 10 years ago, we visited the showroom and workshop of Antichimarmi.it in Fiumicino, and fell in love with pietre dure, art made by cutting stone into pieces that can be assembled into pictures that have shading, perspective, and perfect colouring. We finally were able...More

Supporting the beautiful art commissioned by the Medici and Italian royalty over the centuries are the workshops that developed and maintained the skills of craftsmen (and women) working with wood, stone, metal and semi precious stones. This is a very small museum dedicated to all...More

Not a large museum, but it is worth to visit it. You will see a lot of stone work, sometimes you won't believe that is made from stone. Like paintings!

Testament to the immense wealth of the Medici family. Not a must see, but worth the time if you have such an interest

A friend recommended this museum, and I’m so glad he did. The mosaics were beautiful and it was nice to see the details of this type of collection. This is a recommended stop something, off the beaten path, that you can enjoy for an hour...More

The description of the museum is a bit vague, I think, because they mostly refer to the stone work and whatnot, but really, as an artist, I loved studying and inspecting all the amazing pieces in this museum. It's a small museum but rich with...More

If you're looking for something truly Italian, off-the-beaten-path, or look beyond the typical traveler's must-see list, check out the Museum of Hard Rocks. Actually, it's about semi-precious stone, and it's both a museum and resource for restoration of Italy's vast number of intarsia and stone...More

Just round the corner from"David" and a surprise to the casual visitor. Beautiful inlaid pieces, no thronging crowds and simple guide cards to lead you gently through this home of master craftsmanship.

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a

surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
