Description

In the second half of the 19th Century, Federico Stibbert amassed a rich and varied collection of art in his villa on the Montughi hill. Passed on to the city of Florence in 1906, it consists of around 60 rooms of paintings, furniture and porcelain from around the world. The collection reflects Stibbert's passion for weapons and armor: an impressive variety of rare pieces document equipment and armaments from the 15th to the 17th century. The European armor stands out, but there are also Oriental, Persian, Indian, Islamic and Indonesian examples. The most impressive room is called the Cavalcade in which there are displays of numerous horses with riders in full dress.
