Palazzo Strozzi

Palazzo Strozzi is one of Florence’s great Renaissance residences. Powerful banker Filippo Strozzi the Elder commissioned the palace in the late 1400s, ordering the demolition of a large number of pre-existing buildings in the process. The Palazzo Strozzi we see today is a free-standing and beautifully proportioned structure that trumps the Medici Palace of Strozzi’s business and political rivals, the Medici family. The Strozzi family eventually relinquished the property during the fascist period, and the City of Florence has been managing it since 1999. Visitors now come to see some of the most exciting exhibitions held in Italy each year.
