The visiting itinerary dedicated to the evolution of naturalistic collecting from the Medici origins to the present day is open, also with guided tour. Natura Collecta, Natura Exhibita is set up in the Donatello Hall, in the basement of the Basilica of San Lorenzo.
More information on the Natura Collecta, Natura Exhibita website.
It's possible to navigate part of the visiting itinerary with a virtual tour.
The initiative stems from the collaboration between the University of Florence, the Opera Laurenziana and the Basilica of San Lorenzo, in conjunction with the renovation works that will involve the ‘La Specola’ Museum, one of the pillars of the University Museum System, thus making it inaccessible to the public for a few months.
