Piazza della Signoria

The Piazza della Signoria has always been the heart and soul of Florence. Come along with Andrew Graham-Dixon on a short tour of the square and learn about Palazzo Vecchio, the town hall of the Florentine Republic; the “Gucci” shop, which is the former Tribunal; and the open-air sculpture gallery Loggia dei Lanzi, which used art not only for aesthetic purposes, but also to transmit important political messages.
