Palazzo Pitti

The Pitti Palace, a vast and formidable Renaissance building, is a wonderful representation of the political and social attitudes of Florentines around the time of the city’s burgeoning new wealth. Now Florence’s largest museum complex, housing a huge number of important paintings, statues, and other artistic works, it was once the main residence of the Medici family. To learn more about its historical context, the circumstances of its commission, and its architectural design, take a tour of the palace with art historian Andew Graham-Dixon!
