Amir - Accoglienza, musei, inclusione e relazione [Welcoming, museums, inclusion and relationship] is a project that was launched in September 2018 (the name in Arabic means ‘prince’) and is still ongoing. It is organised by a network of museums with the aim of offering cultural mediation activities led by citizens of foreign origins. It currently involves twenty mediators and eleven museums, collections, villages, churches and public spaces in Florence and Fiesole. The AMIR project is curated by Stazione Utopia and the thematic museum network Musei di Tutti and involves the Museum and Archaeological Area of Fiesole, Museo Bandini, Museo Primo Conti, Museo di Palazzo Vecchio, Museo Novecento, Museo degli Innocenti and other sites involved, including the Art Collection of the Fondazione CR Firenze, Borgo di Quaracchi, Borgo and church of Santa Maria a Peretola, Villa Medicea La Petraia, Garden of Villa Medicea di Castello, in collaboration with the Regional Museums Directorate of Tuscany. The project is made possible by funding from the Region of Tuscany and the Fondazione CR Firenze.



Museo Civico Archeologico and Area Archeologica di Fiesole

The Civic Archaeological Museum and the Archaeological Area of Fiesole, together, told the story of the populations that inhabited Fiesole. From the Etruscans to the Longobards, this suggestive place hosts the possibility of making a real leap into the past.


Museo di Palazzo Vecchio

Palazzo Vecchio represents a symbol for Florence. Seat of government for over seven centuries, Palazzo Vecchio takes us on a real journey through the history and art of Florence.


Collezione d'Arte,
Fondazione CR Firenze

*The visit takes place in Arabic*

The Fondazione CR Firenze owns, a stone's throw from Piazza del Duomo, a rich collection of works of art covering a period from the fourteenth to the twentieth century. From Giotto to Primo Conti, the collection houses paintings, sculptures and beautiful globes.


Villa Medicea La Petraia

Between the 16th and 18th centuries, geographical discoveries opened up an unknown horizon of lands, people, cultures, art objects, botanical species, coming from distant worlds. Villa Medici La Petraia still retains traces of this passion for the exotic, from the portrait of a young albino from Angola, to Chinese watercolors and decorated porcelain vases, the objects tell the gaze that Europe has placed on the world.

Museo Bandini

The museum owes its name to the canon Angiolo Maria Bandini (Fiesole, 1726 - 1803), a great scholar and, since 1756, librarian of the Laurentian Library of Florence, whose monumental catalog he compiled. In contact with some of the most important personalities of the Bandini period, he developed a marked sensitivity for antiques and collecting, so much so that he himself brought together his own collection of works of art in a "Sacred Museum".

Museo del Novecento

Inaugurated on 24 June 2014, the Museo Novecento is dedicated to 20th century art and offers a selection of works from the civic collections, which broadly illustrate Italian art from the first half of the 20th century._cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b- 136bad5cf58d_


Itinerari In Città

Amir offers itineraries in the city to discover from the presence of slavery in Renaissance Florence to the traces of the colonial past that remain barely perceptible.


"La Nave" Via della Sala 2h, Le Piagge

AMIR,  supports the "ilPrisma" project by offering a cycle of visits accompanied by Amir mediators on the occasion of the exhibitions organized at "La Nave".


Museo Primo Conti

The Primo Conti Foundation Museum collects sixty-three paintings and one hundred and sixty-three drawings by the Florentine artist. The works cover a chronological arc that extends from 1911, the year of his artistic debut with the self-portrait of surprising beauty and expressive "maturity", to 1985. The Museum allows you to study, through the work of Primo Conti, the development of artistic events in Italy and in Europe, in the twentieth century.

Museo degli Innocenti

The Museum, housed in the Istituto degli Innocenti, offers the visitor three thematic itineraries - History, Architecture, Art - which together give life to a unified narration that presents the documents collected in the historical archive, the spaces where the life of the little ones welcomed in the structure, the works of the artists who have contributed to making the place for the children beautiful and welcoming.


Borgo e Chiesa di Santa Maria a Peretola

The church is located in the suburb of Peretola, the place of origin of the Vespucci family. It dates back to the 12th century and its structure still preserves an original Romanesque part. In the following centuries the church, administered by the hospital of Santa Maria Nuova, was enriched with many works of art, including a marble, bronze and glazed terracotta ciborium by Luca della Robbia, the first example of the use of the glazed majolica made famous later from the Della Robbia workshop.


Quaracchi, ossia delle acque chiare

Built between the Fosso Macinante and the Arno, Quaracchi is a village on the outskirts of Florence with a very ancient past. Signs of this past are the Church of San Pietro built before the year 1000 and linked over the centuries to the Order of the Knights of Malta, and the Renaissance villa Rucellai, probably a project by LB Alberti. But also the toponymy, the ditches and the streets tell us of a past that goes from the ancient Romans, to the Lombards at the time of Dante, to the Renaissance up to the flood of 1966. A walk through art and architecture to discover an unprecedented Florence.
