The Yule Hospital is located in the historic center of Pistoia and is a former hospital founded in 1277. The hospital name is derived from a strain miraculously flourished during the winter as a result of an apparition of the Madonna. An alternative to this story is the derivation of the name of a cable chestnut "strain" used for the collection of bids. Until 2013 it was the city hospital, it is now used for exhibitions and temporary exhibitions activities. The exhibition of the Museum of the Hospital Yule tells the historical, artistic and architectural with some insights on Renaissance sculpture of Pistoia. In addition, a display section is devoted to the history of Pistoia Health, which recalls the original function of the building. There are surgical instruments and documents relating physicians who contributed to the hospital's reputation. Beside the hospital is the Pavilion of Hemodialysis, which exhibits the works of contemporary art site - specific international artists such as Daniel Buren, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, Hidetoshi Nagasawa, Claudio Parmiggiani, Gianni Ruffi and Daniel Buren.
