This room contains architectural elements, tomb inscriptions and carved decorations of the 11th through the 16th centuries, including fragments of the font and choir enclosure of the Baptistery: masterpieces of the geometric inlaid marble work typical of 13th-century Florence. These pieces were disassembled in 1576 when the medieval font was destroyed to make space for a new structure realised for the baptism of Grand Duke Francis I’s son, Prince Filippo de’Medici.

Formerly in storage , the works in the Lapidarium remind visitors that for centuries this area of courtyards and workshops contained unfinished statues and other decorations, along with pieces that had once adorned the monuments but were later removed.
