A Priceless Place Restored to Florence
Thanks to the effort given and care taken by Bardini and Peyron Monumental Parks Foundation and by the Cassa di Risparmio Firenze Foundation, Villa Bardini has come back to life. Salvaged by the Bardini bequest, the villa was returned to Florence as a museum space, cultural center and place for everyone, all to be discovered.
The most beautiful view of Florence.
The splendid panoramic position over Florence bestowed on it the name “Villa Belvedere”: Villa Bardini brings to mind the “Casini di Delizia” springing up around Florence between the end of the 16th Century and the first half of the 17th, created for repose and leisure and surrounded by agricultural cultivation with the purpose not only of being productive but also ornamental.
Today, Villa Bardini, in addition to maintaining a unique view of the city, has become an exhibition center, an event venue, but especially a place rich with history, art and culture still available and at the disposition of the city and its tourists.
The Grand Exhibits at Villa Bardini
After being left unattended for many years, the Villa was completely restored by the Bardini and Peyron Monumental Parks Foundation and reopened to the public in 2006, with new spaces intended for events and expositions.
Villa Bardini returns, thus, to be a place of art and culture and to host events and works of great national and international artists.
