A new passage, connecting two main streets in Florence, was opened in the Courtyard of Palazzo Medici Riccardi, one of the most important Renaissance buildings in Florence.

We can now walk through “Michelozzo Courtyard “and the “Limonaia”, also called the “Orange Garden”, along the itinerary that penetrates the rhythmic dimension of the cloister, and then opens up in the strict geometry of the Italian garden called “the Path of the Orange Trees” where Lorenzo the Magnificent of the Medici celebrated his marriage.

This green area offered a suitable backdrop for sumptuous banquets at the time of Medici.
The fifteenth-century Michelozzo Courtyard is one of the most evocative places of the Renaissance in Florence, within whose walls are encrusted ancient archaeological artefacts, all of it dominated by the large statue of Orpheus by Baccio Bandinelli.
