Affabulando på Pitti Palace er en guidet tur designet til en ung skare, fra 6 til ca. 14 år. Keep in mind the Palace is very large and will take quite a while to tour properly. If you plan on going through Boboli Gardens as well you should plan on taking a good portion of a day for the task. On a personal note, the collections in the museums at the Pitti Palace are varied and interesting.

Pitti even demanded that the windows of his new palace be wider than the front door of the palace of Cosimo who had, in the meantime, chosen a home that was more sober and less susceptible to inciting envy. The building began around the middle of the s and the palace became the largest and most opulent of the time.

Nonetheless the palace still bears the name of its first owner, the Florentine banker Luca Pitti that in the mids started its construction – maybe after a design by Brunelleschi – at the foot of the Boboli hill beyond the Arno River.

Pitti Palace The Palazzo Pitti is Florence's most important palace, and its combination of splendor, history, and the collections it houses make it one of the city's most popular attractions.

The Pitti Palace, and the amazing art collections contained within, stands as a strong expression of power of the Medici Dukes. The prominent family returned to Florence in the 16th and 17th centuries, after having previously led Florence through the Renaissance. The palace was designed in by Brunelleschi for Luca Pitti, then chief magistrate of the Republic.

Brunelleschi lived to complete the first Story and after Luca's fall the building was not resumed until the palace was purchased by the ducal family and made their residence.

The name of the palazzo derives from the Pitti family, precisely from Luca Pitti, who in the 15th century was a great rival of the hated Medicis.

History tells us that the Medici family, led by Cosimo the Elder (il Vecchio), wanted to build a private palace and assigned the work to the architect Brunelleschi.
