The Church of Orsanmichele, Temple of Wonders

The Church of Orsanmichele clearly stands out for its singular uniqueness. Long ago, the Loggia del Grano and the silent Temple were dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel and a mysterious Madonna “of miracles”: today the Church still welcomes us with its precious Tabernacle, to communicate a secret message. On those blue ribbed vaults of the ceiling, the pages of an ancient doctrinal tradition have been imprinted which has its roots in biblical texts but which is still capable of making us witnesses of its sacredness.

Alchemy blends with the mystery of the characters depicted and goes perfectly with the original bronze statues that populate the small museum. The Major and Minor Arts and the greatest artists of the fifteenth century have left us a true jewel in which worship and devotion once merged with the work of an industrious Florentine people.

The visit will take place inside the Church, and in the Museum which is located inside the Palazzo dell’Arte della Lana.
