I had mistaken the request for the time of the visit. The staff were very nice to our group of 3, despite the early arrival. Obviously the exhibit was excellent and given the artist it couldn't be different.

I appreciated being able to navigate a booking website in English and have my American credit card accepted without a problem— not always the case on Italian websites. The whole experience was seamless.

An event not to be missed. An exquisite exhibition of Donatello works pooled from museums and collections from around the world. All in one place, The Strozzi Palace. Well displayed and annotated.

Intuitive and effective app. Impeccable booking .. Donatello is a miracle but this relates to personal sensitivity and cultural background ..

Amazing to see the works of one of the best sculptors in history all in one place. A must see.
