Museo

The Museum of Fucecchio (museofucecchio.it), founded in 1969 as a museum of sacred art, was reopened in 2004 in the new headquarters of Palazzo Corsini, with the connotation of the city museum, divided into three sections: archaeological, historical-artistic and naturalistic.
The collections, owned by the city, state and ecclesiastical, illustrate the history of the area between the Cerbaie, the lower Valdinievole and the Valdarno, from the end of the Tertiary to the Modern Age, both in its naturalistic aspects and in the ancient settlement, until the artistic productions from the Middle Ages to the contemporary age.
In 2021, the Museum’s collection was enriched with works by master Gino Terreni, the nucleus of preparatory sketches of the monument to the massacre of the Padule inaugurated in Castelmartini (Larciano, Pistoia) 16 September 2002 in the presence of the President of the Republic Carlo Azeglio Ciampi.
These are four works - two tempera on paper and two terracotta - that illustrate the path of elaboration that led the author to the definitive form of the monument.

The Fucecchio Museum is part of the Valdarno di Sotto Museum Network and the Empoli Valdelsa Museum
