We always take in an exhibit at Strozzi when we are in Florence. They always seem to have unique and well done programs. We have seen everything from Leonardo da Vinci to most recently a Marina Abramovic exhibition. WOW, a bit out there but really...More

The huge palace did not look impressive at all. Nothing from its exterior suggests that this was the home of the Strozzi family who rivaled the Medicis in power in Florence in olden times. Went in there to use the box office in the courtyard....More

The palace was built in the 16th century for Filippo Strozzi who wanted to emphasize his status as a rival of the Medici family. It was designed by Benedetto da Maiano as a harmonious and symmetrical civil building. It is a stunning stand-alone building, surrounded...More

This is a fascinating old palace nowadays owned by the Florence local authorities. It’s beautiful lines which can be admired in a wooden model dating to 1490 are quite wonderful. You stand in the courtyard and look up to all 4 glorious sides. A must

If your in the area check it out! Venue that hosts contemporary exhibits and a modern lounge on the first floor The bar in the courtyard is pricey, but it's free to sit on the benches and use the free WIFI.

The palace itself is worth to see, as one of the majestic Florence palaces. There are temporary exhibitions, which are very interesting.

We visited the cinquecento exhibition, the main theme are the different approaches to typical biblical scenes. Several renditions of Jesus being taking down from the cross and versions of Maria. The building is magnificent andd has a pleasant courtyard.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

Trompe l'Oeil at the Strozzi (9 Replies)
For those in Florence until 24 January, there is a stupendous special exhibit of trompe l'oeil ("Inganni ad arte") at the Palazzo Strozzi. The exhibit includes stuff from Roman times to the day before yesterday. It includes a huge range of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, pietra dura, intarsia, multi-media, etc., etc. It includes pictorial works and architectural ones, very serious stuff, and stuff that makes you laugh. It is very much worth a couple of hours.

Agatha: Thank you for letting us know. I really hope we can make it. We have enjoyed a number of special exhibits at the Strozzi in recent years. The explanatory materials have been detailed, scholarly, and in perfect English, as well in Italian. The one on Cezanne and Florence was particularly memorable. I am fascinated by the two Medici queens of France. We think we live in a time of upward mobility, but the rise of the Medici from merchants to monarchs was astonishing....More
Picasso, Miro, Dali Exhibit at Palazzo Strozzi (15 Replies)
If you are in Florence I highly recommend the Picasso, Miro, Dali Exhibit which is going on at the Palazzo Strozzi. I think it is going on through July. I am in the middle of writing a trip report for our time in Florence and recalled the story of how we heard about the exhibit and how it was one of the favorite things we did in Florence. Basically, on our last day in florence we were in the Natural History museum when I knocked over a girls' water bottle. She was one of only a couple...More

Shush, don't mention this too loudly for we always think of this gallery as Florence's best kept secret! Seriously, we fully agree; we caught this exhibition just after it opened and enjoyed it so much we plan to see it again later this week. But all the exhibitions at the Strozzi are fantastic, I'm sure it's down to the curators who put a huge amount of work into presenting the paintings in a very visitor-friendly way with, as you rightly say, excellent labelling. Also, the art often comes...More
