The Stroch Palace is very impressive with its unique large square volume. Located in the center of Florence, it is a noble mansion. It is now an art gallery, but not a permanent exhibition.
The Strozzi Palace was not on my visit list, but when I passed by, I was attracted by its thick dark yellow earth-colored stone masonry. That kind of eye-catching, it is impossible for people passing by to ignore its existence. This is a private grand palace built in 1486 to demonstrate the prestige and status of the banker Strozzi. At present, the palace is mainly used for art exhibitions. Several themed exhibitions are exhibited at the same time. Like the entire architectural style, a very strong artistic atmosphere lingers in it one after another.
The Strozzi Palace is not far from the Palazzo Davanzati, and it only takes ten minutes to walk on the cobblestone streets of Florence from the cathedral. It does not have the warm colors of Palazzo Davanzati and the amazing exhibits of Palazzo Vecchio. In fact, it reminds me more of the bright colors of the Medici Palace. Having said that, if you are looking for diverse elements, I strongly recommend you to visit Strozzi Palace. Similarly, if you want to visit more attractions and seek discount information, you may need to check out the Florence Card.
it hosts some of the best painting exhibitions in town. round the corner
Excellent museum venue for exhibits. Very well down. Better than most. I saw the da Kandinsky a Pollack exhibit here and it was beautiful.
Palazzo Strozzi is a microcosm of the whole city – and one of its finest expressions. Situaed in the heart of Florence, is one of the finest examples of Renaissance domestic architecture.
Palazzo Strozzi is not only a stunning example of of Italian Renaissance "domestic" architecture, it's an often overlooked art and culture museum as well. Years ago I saw a show of the portraitist Annigioni (think Queen Elizabeth on the cover of Time Magazine). As I write this the next show opening features American painters in Florence. Not up for the Ufizzi? Check out the Strozzi.
