San Marco Museum Tickets
A bit of history about the San Marco Museum
Built between 1473 and 1452 by Michelozzo; an architect highly respected by the Medici. By the end of its construction, this convent was one of the newest and more comfortable in Italy.
This Michelozzo project ended with the construction of a large renaissance-style, sober, graceful and elegant building. During the Lorenzo the Magnificent tenure this building became a library, which was a heaven for humanist and intellectuals of the time to consult books in Latin and Greek. This piece from Michelozzo was the first public library of the western world.
The convent of San Marco was expropriated during the Napoleonic time in 1808, returning to the Dominican Friars at the fall of the French empire. During its restoration in 1866 it was confiscated by the Italian government, which eliminated all religious orders.
In 1869 it was declared a National Monument and it open its doors to the public.
