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 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.
The Music is awesome
