Palazzina del Cavaliere Boboli Gardens

Reopening Porcelain Museum
March 12 has reopened the Porcelain Museum, located at the top of Boboli Gardens, after the completion of plant improvement. The Porcelain Museum collects the most beautiful porcelain in Europe, bought from Pietro Leopoldo and Ferdinando III, this collection was enriched by the arrival of porcelain from historical Parma homes, Piacenza and Sala Baganza that, since 1860, were "looted" to furnish Savoy apartments in Florence. The museum is housed in the eighteenth-century palace called Cavaliere, suggestively placed on the top of Boboli Gardens and designed by Medici family as a house of delights.
