Behind the church of San Lorenzo, the Medici Chapels Museum consists of the Medici Crypt, the Chapel of the Princes and Michelangelo's New Sacristy.
At the wishes of the Medici popes, Leo X and Clement VII, Michelangelo worked to decorate the New Sacristy between 1520 and 1534, in successive stages. The architecture and the sculptural decoration, including funerary monuments of members of the Medici family, were designed and begun by Michelangelo before he went to Rome. The New Sacristy was carried out and arranged as we see today by Giorgio Vasari and Bartolomeo Ammannati.
