Historical Hunting and Territorial Museum
Welcome in the home page of the Historical Hunting and Territorial Museum. The aim of this website is the presentation of a digital gallery in which the user may query part of the works exposed in the museum.
This site is the result of the collaboration between the Soprintendenza Speciale per il Patrimonio Storico, Aristico ed Etnoantropologico e per il Polo Museale della città di Firenze and the Cerreto Guidi county.
The Historical Hunting and Territorial Museum was opened on September 28 of 2002 and is dedicated to arms and more specifically to hunting and throw arms, partially coming from the Bardini Heritage, and in part from deposits and temporary lending.
In some rooms decorative frescos are visible. These go back to the late neoclassic period like the view of the ruins in the northern loggia.
The current villa furniture had been reconstructed following as much as possible the descriptions recorded in the historical inventories. Part of the ancient furniture (most of them from the Medicean era) came from the deposits of the Florentine Soprintendenza, originally donated from the 1844 Antonio Conti antique-dealer and from Stefano Bardini (acquired by the Government during the 1996). The exhibition count also a group of tapestries with the four seasons from a Granducal origin which although not originally form Cerreto, may offer an idea of the tapestry that once upon a time decorated the villa.
