Welcome to the BeGo, the Benozzo Gozzoli museum
The BeGo safeguards and promotes the artworks created by the Florentine artist Benozzo Gozzoli in Castelfiorentino, in the heart of the Valdelsa, towards the end of the 1400s. Here you can familiarize with Benozzo Gozzoli, his frescoes and preparatory sketches (sinopias) for the two magnificent roadside tabernacles, known respectively as the Tabernacle of the Visitation and the Tabernacle of the Madonna of the Cough. You will appreciate the spirit of these monuments and the period in which they were constructed, that of the Renaissance. You will be able to discover the techniques of fresco and sinopia as well as the complex process of detaching the frescoes from the walls for the purposes of maintenance and preservation. Finally, you will certainly appreciate their beauty as you yourself take part in an exciting journey through time. Benozzo and his masterpieces await you. Accessibility The BeGo museum believes in promoting our artistic heritage and makes every effort to ensure the participation of an ever wider public, in line with the principles of inclusion, dignity and individual rights. The museum staff is specifically trained to explain the museum heritage and is at the disposal of visitors to facilitate their enjoyment, with the aid of all the equipment and tools the museum possesses.
