This exhibition places Picasso's works in context against his Spanish contemporaries. On display are several preparatory works for Guernica and Weeping Woman. A brilliant location, big, quiet rooms. Worth a visit on a Thursday when its open till 11.00 pm.

I see from other reviews here that depending upon the exhibition, this visit could be disappointing or excellent, and anything in between. Truth in advertising we were here 2 years ago in April and I am just getting around to review this trip. Our visit was lovely--the exhibit "Americani a Firenze--Sargent e gli impressionisti del Nuovo Mondo" was extraordinary. When... More

Apart from a room dedicated to sketches of Guernica, most of the exhibition is NOT about Picasso, but about other Spanish artists. Moreover the artwork by Picasso shown in this exhibition is pretty poor in light of his production. Apart from the 3 Miro, just about the most boring exhibition I have seen in many years. The only positive point... More

Palazzo Strozzi is not gorgeous on the outside, but it is spacious, pretty and open on the inside. There are exhibition spaces and currently the Picasso and Spanish Modernity exhibit is being showcased. The space is fabulous - plenty of room to walk and contemplate the art and the lighting is excellent on the pieces. We went in the early... More

I don't know why but every time I walk past this palace I feel like I am getting to experience what Florence was like in the Renaissance. It has a special aura about it.

We took the opportunity to see the Picasso exhibit while in Florence. The Palazzo Strozzi proved to be a very relaxing area to take a break. We found the crowds to be be smaller and the local shops and restaurants to be exceptionally nice. This is a beautiful part of the city that offers much without the big crowds. It... More
