    Description :

    “The Bargello houses the national museum of Tuscan sculpture…Here again, the horrors of history are covered over by beautiful works of art. The Bargello, which was built for the podestat and borrowed his name, was both a prison and the residence of the chief of the police. The chapel was were Savonarola spent his last night before being burned at the stake.”

    Leprohon, Pierre: Florence, Editions Minerva, 1978, p. 44.
