Archivi Fotografici Alinari

Photography in San Lorenzo & San Marco

Since 1852 the world’s oldest photographic firm has amassed an archive of some 3.5 million photographs, ranging from daguerreotypes to digital images. Its archives are open to the public, and you can still order prints of the original photographs just like Lucy Honeychurch in A Room with a View.

The archives also form the nucleus of the collection at the nearby Museo Nazionale Alinari della Fotografia.
