“The Academy was built in the 1784 when the Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo reorganized the Academy of the Arts of Design, founded in 1563 by Cosimo I de'Medici, in the modern Academy of Fine Arts. The new institution occupied the rooms of the fourteenth century of San Matteo Hospital and those of the convent of San Niccolò di Cafaggio. The museum was enriched with the suppression of churches and convents ordered by Pietro Leopoldo in 1786 and by Napoleone Bonaparte in 1810. The decisive event in the history of the museum was the transfer of Michelangelo's David from Piazza della Signoria in August 1873. The most famous sculpture in the world waited nine years, kept in a wooden case, the conclusion of the construction of the Tribune designed by the architect Emilio De Fabris to welcome it. Today's Academy Gallery was established in 1882.”

“Purchased in 1550 by Cosimo I de Medici and by his wife Eleonora of Toledo to transform it into the new grand-ducal residence, Palazzo Pitti soon became the symbol of the consolidated power of the Medici over Tuscany. Palace of two other dynasties, the Habsburg-Lorraine (successors of the Medici from 1737) and of the Savoys, who inhabited it as royal of Italy since 1865, Palazzo Pitti still bears the name of its first owner, the Florentine banker Luca Pitti, who in the mid-fifteenth century wanted to build it - perhaps designed by Brunelleschi - beyond the Arno, at the foot of the Boboli hill.”

City Hall
“Florence's town hall is a very special one. Once the home of the Medici family, it's located right next to the Uffizi gallery and for this reason way too many people skip it :( From the quotes from Dante's Inferno engraved in the courtyard to the delicate 'grottesche' paintings on the ceilings, there are so many cool things to find in this ancient building that remains at the heart of Florence's political scene. Did you know there's even a secret passage in the maps room? I won't tell you where it is... but if you look close I'm sure you can find it!”

Iglesia
“The Basilica of Santa Maria Novella was founded by the friars of the Dominican Order in the first half of the thirteenth century, becoming one of the most important religious and artistic landmarks in Italy. The celebrity of Santa Maria Novella during the medieval and Renaissance periods favored the concentration on the whole of very important works by artists of the caliber of Giotto, Brunelleschi, Masaccio, Michelangelo, Ghirlandaio, Botticelli and Vasari, just to name a few. This particular artistic and religious fortune has made the place inextricably linked to his works of art. These have been realized specifically for Santa Maria Novella.”

Museum
“It is the mausuleo of the Medici dynasty. The dark crypt precedes the imposing, sumptuous Cappela dei Principi: a vast seventeenth-eighteenth-century setting covered with hard stone inlays made by the famous Opificio, where the sarcophagi of the Medici Grand Dukes dominate. Adjacent is the famous New Sagrestia by Michelangelo - an extraordinary synthesis of sculpture and architecture - in which we can admire the Tombs of Giuliano Duca di Nemours and Lorenzo Duca di Urbino, in addition to the sublime Madonna with Child.”

“ Sepolcreto of the Medici family. It hosts the graves of 50 members of the noble Florentine family. The Chapels are located in the Basilica of San Lorenzo but have an independent entrance behind the Basilica. In addition to the Crypt where the Medici are buried, the new Sagrestia, which Michelangelo built for the tombs of Lorenzo and Giuliano dei Medici, and the Cappella dei Principi, built starting from the seventeenth century as a mausoleum of the Medici, are part of the complex. A particular fact regards the imprisonment of Michelangelo who was detained there for some time”
