An­nun­zia­ta, l’aper­tu­ra al pub­bli­co del pia­no se­min­ter­ra­to co­me par­te del per­cor­so mu­sea­le, la rea­liz­za­zio­ne di un nuo­vo si­ste­ma di col­le­ga­men­ti ver­ti­ca­li, il rial­le­sti­men­to del­la pi­na­co­te­ca. E in­fi­ne la re­sti­tu­zio­ne al­la cit­tà – co­me caf­fet­te­ria – del ma­gni­fi­co Ve­ro­ne, la gran­de log­gia­sten­di­to­io con splen­di­de vi­sua­li sui tet­ti di Fi­ren­ze. (EF) Star­ting from la­st Ju­ne the fa­mous pa­laz­zo built by Brunelleschi bet­ween 1419 and 1445 reo­pe­ned to the pu­blic as a Mu­seum of the 600 years of hi­sto­ry of this In­sti­tu­tion, on­ce or­pha­na­ge, to­day de­di­ca­ted to the pro­mo­tion of a cul­tu­re of chil­dren’s rights. The pro­ject was car­ried out by the Flo­ren­ti­ne team at Ipo­stu­dio, whi­ch won an in­ter­na­tio­nal com­pe­ti­tion that was laun­ched in 2008, and of­fers se­ve­ral news: the en­tran­ce area on Piaz­za SS. An­nun­zia­ta, the ope­ning of the ba­se­ment le­vel as part of the mu­seum, the crea­tion of ver­ti­cal con­nec­ting in­fra­struc­tu­re, and the re-de­si­gn of the pi­na­co­te­ca’s han­ging sy­stem. A new ve­nue is al­so the re­de­di­ca­tion to the ci­ty as a ca­fé of the ma­gni­fi­cent Ve­ro­ne, the great log­gia­dry­ing area wi­th splen­did views over the roof­tops of Flo­ren­ce

The pro­ject by Ipo­stu­dio, win­ner of the com­pe­ti­tion, brings back to li­fe the Spe­da­le de­gli In­no­cen­ti. Fi­nal­ly open to the pu­blic
