The inside story

Florence’s Palazzo Pitti is today one of the biggest museums in Italy and a favorite stop for the city’s countless visitors. The Palace was built by the rich Florentine banker Luca Pitti and is a grand Renaissance building that dates back to 1458. The real fame and power of this building began when the powerful de’ Medici family, one of the ruling families of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and great patrons of the arts, took it as a guest residence and eventually used it as a place to store their growing collection of precious items, paintings and artwork.

Today, Palazzo Pitti is home to many different museums that are held on different floors and halls of the building. Visitors can see the Palatina Gallery, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Costume Gallery (that is like an antique fashion gallery), the ‘Museo degli Argenti’ that holds a part of the de’ Medici family treasure, the Porcelain Museum and the famous Boboli Garden (Giardino di Boboli).
