If you're planning a short break in Florence, don’t miss a visit to the Museum of Medici Chapels. The Museum is located in the beautiful complex of the Basilica of San Lorenzo. The tour starts from the Crypt which houses the graves of 50 members of the Medici family, including Cosimo I, the Grand Duke Ferdinand I and his wife Christine of Lorraine, the Prince Lorenzo and the Cardinal Leopoldo.

From the Crypt you then go on to the Chapel of the Princes. The true masterpiece of the Museum is, however, the New Sacristy, designed by Michelangelo on a previous project by Giuliano da Sangallo. The New Sacristy was commissioned by Pope Leo X de' Medici for his father Lorenzo il Magnifico, his uncle Giuliano de' Medici and a few other members of the dynasty.

Michelangelo started working on it in 1520 and went on it till 1534, when he was called to Rome. The expulsion of the Medici in 1527 and the siege of Florence caused additional delays. The Medici Chapels is a true masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance.

Masterpieces

Chapel of the Princes:

The sarcophagi of six Medici Grand Dukes are located against the walls of the big octagon; above the one of the Grand Duke Ferdinando I and the one of Cosimo II, within niches, we found two colossal gilded bronze statues, cast by Pietro and Ferdinando Tacca between 1626 and 1642. Below, sixteen coats of arms of Tuscan towns, made of semi-precious stones, mother of pearl, lapis-lazuli and coral.

New Sacristy:

Michelangelo, tombs of Lorenzo Duke of Urbino and Giuliano Duke of Nemours with the symbolical figures (Day and Night, Dawn and Dusk).

Michelangelo, Madonna and Child, on the tomb of Lorenzo the Magnificent and his brother Giuliano.
