In addition to Slaves by the sublime artist, you can find other gems, such as the original plaster cast of Giambologna’s Rape of the Sabine Women; the magnificent collection of musical instruments that belonged to the Medici family, including a rare Stradivarius and the world’s oldest piano, as well as many examples of Florentine 15th- and 16th-century painting, with art by greats such as Paolo Uccello, Botticelli, Perugino, Filippino Lippi and Ghirlandaio.
