The Museo dell'Opera di Santa Maria Novella is located in Florence in the heart of the city and close to the central station. The Santa Maria Novella Basilica was built in the first half of the thirteenth century thanks to the architect Leon Battista Alberti. After the great restoration of the Basilica in 2000 and 2001 it was possible to create the Museo dell'Opera di Santa Maria Novella. The goal is to transmit, promote and enhance the works located within it. The Basilica concentrated in one place works by Botticelli, Brunelleschi, Giotto, Masaccio, Michelangelo, Vasari, Ghirlandaio and many others. Some of the most important works are the "Trinity" by Masaccio, the "Crucifix" by Giotto, the "Crucifix" by Brunelleschi. Of great value are the small side chapels, the most important are the Chapel of Filippo Strozzi, with frescoes by Filippino Lippi, and the Chapel Tornabuoni. The Museo di Santa Maria Novella includes the Green Cloister, the Spanish Chapel, Chapel of the Dead, the Chapel of the Drunkards and the Refectory.
