Pietra serena

the museum

The Museo della Pietra Serena is housed in the subterranean area beneath the Rocca in Firenzuola. The museum consists of four rooms, where it is possible to find historical works in stone which have been associated with life in Firenzuola since it was first established. There is a collection of simple but effective work tools, a series of historical documents showing the difficult working conditions endured by the quarrymen, and an itinerary which starts with the extraction of stone before the availability of machines and ends with the realisation of completed artefacts. Also on display is a series of objects which demonstrate the versatility of pietra serena and the mastery of highly-skilled stonemasons.
