The Marino Marini Museum was born from the will of Marino and Marina Marini who, at the end of the 1970s, identified the former church of San Pancrazio in Florence as the ideal place to link the donation of works that the artist, shortly before to die, he had done to the city. The renovation of the church, recovered after centuries and redesigned to a public function, was carried out by the architects Lorenzo Papi and Bruno Sacchi who were able to create an installation in the image and likeness of that fascinating world of Marino Marini, one of the most significant characters of the figurative culture of the twentieth century. The museum houses 183 works by Marino Marini: drawings, lithographs, paintings, sculptures, all exhibited to the public on the four levels of the museum. An integral part of the museum, recovered for public visits after a long restoration, is one of the wonders of the Florentine Renaissance: the Rucellai Chapel, an absolute masterpiece of the architect Leon Battista Alberti, with the Tempietto del Santo Sepolcro.
