- Dante's house was located between the church of "S. Martino" and "Piazza dei Donati",which was the 13th century location of the houses of the Alighieri family, as reported in many old documents. At the beginning of the 20th century, after several studies and researches, the Municipal Administration ordered the building of this house to celebrate the place of birth of Dante. The first floor of the house holds the documents of his youth during the 13th century. The second floor are documents related to his exile from Florence in 1301. The third floor shows how Dante has been appreciated throughout the ages and what he has given to the Italian culture, more especially the Florentine culture. There are also works of art representing his life as reproduced by Giotto, Beato Angelico, Ghirlandaio, Raphael and Michelangelo.
