There is a small museum in the same building displaying 19th-century workbenches and tools as well as vases and portraits showing pietre dure work. Several table tops decorated with pietre dure are on display: one inlaid with a harp and garlands by Zocchi, made in 1849, another with flowers and birds, designed by Niccolo Betti in 1855. A stockpile of exquisite marbles and other semi-precious stones dates back to Medici times. Spedale degli Innocenti © Piazza della Santissima Annunziata 12. Map 2 D4.
