To learn about 19th-century antiquarian and art collector and restorer Stefano Bardini, visit this lesser-known palazzo museum. Through his work as one of Italy's most authoritative antiquarians, Bardini amassed a small fortune and his own expansive collection of Renaissance art, displayed here, is one of Florence's unspoken-about delights. Bardini bought the former church and convent of San Gregorio della Pace in 1881 and converted it into a neo-Renaissance palazzo to house both his collection and laboratories in which to restore art works.
