The Benozzo Gozzoli Museum designed by massimo mariani is located in Castelfiorentino (Florence), Italy. The building is rooted to the ground with a functional base, a shaped island, which solves the problem of urban furnishing (benches, flower-pot, etc..). The curvilinear base which runs around the building, can also be used as a seating area, a playing area for children and a stage for small outdoor theatrical events.
Requested by the local municipality, the building is entirely coated in bricks as it matches the materials and finishes of some local churches. The ground floor is characterized in part by a low ceiling, it’s a shaded area which quickly runs to the full-height space, where the Tabernacolo della Visitazione is situated, under a cascade of natural light. On the first floor, recessed into the corner-wall, is where the Tabernacolo della Madonna della Tosse can be found.
