Val di Sieve
The rooms inside are adorned with archaeological objects, reportage photographs and masks from all over the world, the result of the travels of the photographer Eugenio GEO Bruschi who has visited more than 130 countries.
The Museum therefore gives expression to the more ethnic aspects, without, however, neglecting, at the same time, those who are local artists, whose exhibitions are hosted daily inside the building.

ORARIO DI APERTURA
The Archaeological Museum of Dicomano collects the archaeological finds of the Val di Sieve and Mugello.
Fascinating finds, from the Etruscans who in the Val di Sieve have long lived and thrived, until the Renaissance which left a strong testimony in these lands.
A ring route to relive the history of this extraordinary territory, admiring unique and rare finds from distant peoples, who already millennia ago saw in this land a rich and extraordinary place to settle.
Villa Poggio Reale
Exhibition of tools for the cultivation of vines and for the production and conservation of wine, in use between 1930 and 1960. Extensive display of flasks also in blown glass from the 1700s.
In Rufina the name of the town has been confused for at least a century with that of wine.
Its consumption in Val di Sieve is testified since the Etruscan age, as well as its trade appears documented when the construction sites of Brunelleschi's dome were still open.
The historical depth represents for the Museum, and for the current wine production, a precious awareness, not an income of position.
The golden age of wine has not been lost: on the contrary, work is still underway to achieve it fully with qualitative innovation much more than with absolute loyalty to a tradition that has always known how to evolve. From vines to flavors, from tools to techniques; the ways of making and judging wine have never been the same.
Hence the choice of the Museum to become a laboratory, together, of memory and new experiences, as directly expressed by the space set up: the cellars of Villa Poggio Reale and the Enoteca, where the signs of the past are displayed in close relationship with the vitality of the current production.
The language chosen alternates the punctuality of the document with the charm of the evocation.
The visit begins before the museum, right from the gate, where an avenue of cypresses flanked by vineyards leads us right in front of the facade of the Villa of Poggioreale.
Inside is the museum consisting of four rooms. (from comune.rufina.fi.it)

Collection of Sacred Art
Church of San Clemente
In the parish church of S. Clemente, a collection of sacred art has been set up for the purpose of conservation with works from the churches of the municipal area: paintings, statues, altarpieces, triptychs, various types of furniture, decorations and objects of worship from 1200 to 1900.
Some of these are the work of famous artists (Maestro di Montefoscoli, Niccolò di Pietro Gerini, etc.). Other times it is the work of unknown but very talented craftsmen. The various objects testify to a widespread and well-rooted religious sentiment in the history of the local population.
This is not a real museum, but a temporary exhibition of works set up taking into account their liturgical function. A dozen paintings from various churches in the area are placed on the walls of the nave, the counter-façade and above the altars. In two windows in the presbytery liturgical furnishings are exposed, in the sacristy reliquaries and other eighteenth-century liturgical objects are preserved.
