Strozzi collection


The Strozzi Collection, arranged in the room of the same name furnished with white wooden cabinets, includes more than 6,500 heterogeneous samples arranged by type: vertebrates and invertebrates but, above all, around 2,000 samples of leaves, mostly coming from Tuscan locations.

This collection was donated in 1910 to the Institute of Higher Studies of Florence by the nephew of the Marquis Carlo Strozzi. The donation was on the condition that the items were kept together in a room named after Carlo Strozzi, a passionate naturalist and member of the commission set up to draw up the first Geological Map of Italy.
