Museo del Bigallo
 

The Bigallo's name has a well-documented source that dates back to the Greater Company of Saint Mary of Bigallo, who managed the Hospice for pilgrims and travellers in Florence just since the fourteenth-century. In 1351 the Company received as a gift a house on the corner of Adimari Course and there were constructed the present lodge and oratory. It houses some 14th century frescos, including the Madonna della Misericordia from 1342, which contains the first known image of Florence, protected by the Virgin's mantle. The museum also houses priceless 14th and 15th century paintings, including a splendid triptych by Daddi, the Madonnas with Child by Domenico di Michelino and the Master of San Miniato, as well as sculptures by Master Alberto Arnoldi, architect of the Loggia and, with Francesco Talenti, site superintendent at Santa Reparata from 1331 to 1352.
