Collection of 1300 glass plates negatives and their related prints, documenting the work of Giannino Marchig (1897-1983), especially as a conservator, and showing paintings and sculptures in various stages of conservation. This archive came to Villa I Tatti through Fiorella Gioffredi Superbi, daughter of Geremia Gioffredi, Berenson’s estate manager, to whom Marchig entrusted his archive before leaving Italy for Switzerland.

Photographs donated by former I Tatti director Craig Hugh Smyth (1915-2006). Smyth’s archive, including his study photographs, was recently donated by his heirs to Villa I Tatti, and is currently being processed.
Photographs and negatives, part of the papers of art historian and critic Giorgio Castelfranco (1896-1978) donated by his son Paolo. This study material most significantly reflects Castelfranco’s fundamental studies on Leonardo da Vinci and also Italian 20th-century painting, in particular Giorgio De Chirico.
Photographs, drawings and notes of the Florentine architect Emilio Marcucci (1837-1890). This material was bequeathed as part of the Roberto and Livia Papini Papers. It comprises mainly early photographs of Italian architecture and views, and documents Marcucci’s use of photography for his architectural projects in the second half of the 19th century.
Photographs collected by the architectural historian and critic Roberto Papini (1883-1957), close friend of Berenson. This photographic material is part of the Roberto and Livia Papini Papers and is focused mainly on Italian art of the 20th century.
