The Augustinian complex in Santo Spirito is one of the great religious and artistic monuments of Florence. The museum is located in the ancient Cenacle of the Convent, decorated by a grandiose fresco depicting the Crucifixion and the Last Supper by Andrea Orcagna.
The sculptures donated to the city of Florence by the collector and antique dealer Salvatore Romano in 1946 are arranged in this vast room. It is a small but well chosen collection of works that begins with Pre-Romanesque examples and goes up to XV century art.
This nucleus of Romanesque sculptures constitutes one of the most important example of this period in Florence. Among the most significant works shown are the Caryatides and the Adoring Angel by Tino di Camaino, the Virgin and Child by Jacopo della Quercia and two bas-reliefs by Donatello portraying San Prosdocimo e San Massimo, from the Basilica of Sant’Antonio in Padua.
