Orsanmichele - Review

The Orsanmichele is a basilica situated in the Italian city of Florence. The building was built on the site of the kitchen arrangement of the cloister of San Michele, which has been taken down presently. Situated upon the Via Calzaiuoli in Florence, the church was initially constructed in 1337 by Francesco Talenti as a grain trading zone. He was assisted by the famous native architects named Neri di Fioravante, Benci di Cione and a few others. Duringthe span from 1380 to 1404, the building had been transformed into a church which has ever since been regarded as a famous basilica of Florence's compelling specialty and exchange organizations. The ground storey of the square building houses  the thirteenth century architectural curves that basically framed the loggia of the grain business. The second floor had been structured for accommodating work places, while the third floor accommodated one of the city's major civil grain storage facilities, upheld to withstand starvation or siege. Later during the fourteenth century, the organizations were charged by the city for the requisition of statues to adorn the fronts of the church.

  • The veneers had borne 14 magnificent architectures which were filled during the stretch from 1399 to 1430. The three of the wealthiest societies had taken the responsibility to cast the statues in bronze, which required more or less ten times the measure of the original stone figures.

Orsanmichele, Florence Reviews

  • The museum is only open Saturday and Monday, but the church is always open. It is small but really cool. Not worth seeing unless you are close to it, but it's in the center and it's free to go in. The place is really pretty and tends to be filled with people inside so beware.

  • The church is free to enter and is the perfect balance of beautiful art and stained glass windows. Small but perfectly formed.

  • A great place to spend an hour or two. It's free and the church has beautiful artwork and architecture. There is an upstairs area with a museum of statues which also has views of the Florentine rooftops

  • Good location. Pretty on the outside, average on the inside. Small in size.

  • There was a church dedicated to Saint Michael (San Michele) on the site in 750. The "or" part of the name comes from "orto" which means "vegetable garden", and back then that's what was around. In the late 13th century the church was knocked down and a covered area (loggia) built for the grain market. That burnt down and in the 1370's the current building was erected. Around the outside there are 14 alcoves for sculptures of each patron saint of each of the major guilds. The current ones are copies with the originals in the museum upstairs. The building is 4 storeys (40 metres) high and includes a church on the ground floor, with a miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary. Originally, there was a miraculous fresco on a pillar. After the fresco was destroyed in the fire Bernardo Daddi created a replacement (the miraculous properties transferred over) in 1346. It sits enshrined in a magnificent tabernacle created by Andrea di Cione (known as Orcagna) in 1359. The church is quite lovely with vaulted ceilings and original frescoes (some quite damaged). Upstairs on the first floor is the museum (only open on Monday) with twelve of the 14 original statues. Most are from the first decades of the 15th century. They are in bronze or marble and sculpted by heavyweights such as Lorenzo Ghiberti, Nanni di Banco, Donatello and Andrea del Verrocchio. It was fascinating to see the difference in style that two and a half centuries made to the work of Bernini. The museum is set up very well - it is light and there are many seats for students to sit and sketch the statues.
