Palazzo Strozzi is a microcosm of the whole city – and one of its finest expressions. Situated between Piazza Strozzi and via Tornabuoni in the heart of Florence, the Palazzo Strozzi is one of the finest examples of Renaissance domestic architecture. Since the Second World War the Palazzo has been Florence’s largest temporary exhibition space. On the palazzo’s Piano Nobile and in the Strozzina area the Fondazione organises art exhibitions ranging from the art of the ancient world via the Renaissance to the modern and contemporary era. The challenge facing the Fondazione from the outset has been to bring international quality exhibition and cultural events to Florence and Tuscany.
