This historical palace built by Brunelleschi in 1419, was the first foundling hospital of Europe. Children were left here by parents who could not afford to keep and feed them. Other wealthy families supported children and they took care of them until they found a job.
We will visit together the paintings, the archives, and the small objects the mothers left them. Through these symbols, the original family could recognize their children if in a future it wanted them back.
