Do not miss an opportunity to see a cross section of the Mugello, which no longer exists but which is the basis of craft and food traditions of this land, in the heart of Tuscany.

In the photos are also shown the ancient arts and crafts, such as manufacturing of knives, stone, wrought iron, in addition to farming and livestock activities that have always characterized the Mugello.

The admission price for “Images of Mugello – Historical Photos by Alinari” costs € 3. With the same ticket you can also visit the Palazzo dei Vicari.
