Palazzo Vecchio

The Palazzo, built in 1299 by Arnolfo di Cambio, was the residence of the "Signoria" from the XV century and then from 1540 became the Medici family home, where the Vasari work of arts would lavish and stand out: a 500 century hall, Francesco I small study, Eleonora's quarters and the Elements quarter. In the house scattered with fundamental works of art from the renaissance period of sculptures, like Genio della Vittoria of Michelangelo and the Giuditta e Oloferne of Donatello.

CENTENARY OF THE MODERN ART GALLERY IN THE PALAZZO PITTI

To celebrate the centenary of its foundation, Pitti Palace Gallery of Modern Art has dedicated an exhibition to the twentieth-century collections held by the museum. In fact, despite the Gallery of Modern Art is known for being the museum that has the largest collection of Macchiaioli paintings in the world, you probably do not know all the interesting collection of twentieth-century works until now confined in the stores. The show tends to attract attention to this museum, until now submerged due to a lack of exhibition space.

Piazza della Signoria

Around the gallery there are some areas that really warrant a visit and first on the list is the Piazza della Signoria. Here besides this impressive Palazzo Vecchio, you can find the "Nettuno" fountain also called "Biancone", built in the second half of the 500th century and designed by Bartolomeo Ammannati. In 2006 a little boy carelessly climbed the sculpture and eventually one of the arms broke off but fortunately was quickly reattached, "like old".
Right in front of the "Palazzo Vecchio" the symbols of liberty two sculptures, the famous David of Michelangelo, where the 1503 original held in the "Galleria dell'Accademia" and "Ercole e Caco di Baccio Bandinelli".
The "Loggia dei Lanzi" in the forbidden piazza also called "Loggia dell'Orcagna" named after its designer. The famous bronze "Perseo" by Cellini stands out and brought back to its antique brilliance when it was restored a few years ago and the "Ratto delle Sabine di Giambologna" (the rape of the Giambologna Sabine women).

Uffizi room 1 archeologica

Assembled in this room are archaeological pieces in marble, most of which come from Rome.
Many of them are reliefs that are casts of those on the Ara Pacis (Altar of Augustan Peace); others, of remarkable quality, are the Temple of Vesta and the Scene of Sacrifice originating from a 2nd century Hadrian frieze.
In addition, there is a sarcophagus with the Labours of Hercules, in which he is illustrated at various ages, recalling those periods of his life.
