Casa Dante

Housed in a 14th-century noble villa located just in front of Dante’s Tomb, CASA DANTE (Dante’s House) is the final stop of the itinerary started in Museo Dante.

It is a polifunctional space hosting various exhibition areas, a bookshop, a didactic workshop and a meditation court.

The first room, realised thanks to the collaboration with the Uffizi Galleries, hosts a long-term exhibition with some very  important works loaned by the museum of Florence itself.

In a second room you will be able to see Dante’s collections from the Classense Library, the institution that has always taken care of the safeguard, display and scientific management of all the materials related to Dante preserved in the city.

Besides the exhibition areas, Casa Dante hosts a didactic woskshop equipped with working and learning stations for students.

Lastly, there is a meditation court that offers an area for reflection, in ideal continuity with the Zone of Silence.

Casa Dante finally boasts another area (which is still in preparation), dedicated to design, taking inspiration from Dante’s figure. This space has been created thanks to the prestigious collaboration with Adi design Museum.
