Villa Pecori Giraldi - Borgo San Lorenzo
Villa Pecori Giraldi
The suggested itinerary starts in Pecori Giraldi Palace. Constructed on the site of an ancient Giraldi property, in 1748 it passed into the hands of Count Pecori who gave the property both his name and the former owner’s. In 1979, the family donated the building to the town of Borgo San Lorenzo.
The façade is in Renaissance style, while the interior, including the Chini Museum which it houses, is proof of the vibrant Art Nouveau style brought to Mugello by the family.
The halls have both geometrical and floral frescoes, and reproductions of Medieval works created by Galileo Chini in the early 20th century. Of important value is the cyclic decoration representing Saint George on the walls of the main hall. Of great interest is the exhibition of ceramic, objects in grès, and rare polychrome glassworks.
On the upper floor of the prestigious Villa Pecori Giraldi takes place the Chini Museum, the new museum exhibit is curated by the Director Alessandro Cocchieri with the scientific support of the Professor Gilda Farinello Grosso.
