A delight, seek this out. A quiet little museum containing three floors of Marino Marini's work sculpture, drawings and paintings. The museum is modern, light and works perfectly. A real joy.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
