The Sala degli Avori in Florence's Bargello Museum has reopened after being closed for six years. More specfically, the newly renovated room holds the museum's collection of ivory sculpture including rare Etruscan and Roman objects to 19th-century artefacts. Many of the objects presented in the room were gifted by the Lyonnaise antique dealer Louis Carrand on his death in 1888. New glass cabinets have been installed alongside information displays bearing English translations for the first time in the museum's history.
