Italian text

The volume is the result of some long research done on the documents of the Archive of State of Florence. It traces the history of Santa Maria Nuova Hospital, giving particular attention to the period from 1830 to 1968, when the building went through a process of modernization that made it an important model, as a nursing home, and as a structure of great architectural interest. While tracing the past of the hospital, the author highlights the subtle link between the progresses of medicine, social hygiene, society, professional turmoil and cultural environment, underlining the central importance of the hospital in the arrangement of the modern urban health.
The changes occurred to the building are also witnessed by a wide iconography including several planimetries and vintage photos.
