Palazzo Pitti is one of the largest architectural monuments in Florence. Florentine architect Filippo Brunelleschi designed the residence (as mentioned before) for the Pitti family in 1457. Since it drove them into bankruptcy, it's likely they came to pity their decision! However, this luxurious Florentine residence was only the middle cube of the building we see today!
As irony would have it, in 1549, Medici family bought the residence Luca Pitti built to challenge their status of superiority. It was them who contracted Bartolomeo Ammannati to add a grand courtyard and two lateral wings. Cosimo II de Medici began the renovations that characterize Pitti residence as we know it with the famous Boboli gardens hiding behind the palace.
Nowadays, the Palazzo is home to diverse museums which are bound to flood you with pompousness. On the first floor, Palatine Gallery offers a vast collection of the 16th and 17th-century artworks (including a few by Raphael). Next, the sumptuous Royal Apartments feature fancy furniture pieces from the 19th century. On the ground floor and mezzanine, the Treasury of the Grand Dukes (Silver Museum) tickles your imagination with a collection of Medici household treasures. Last but not least, the Gallery of Modern Art on the top gives you peek into the artistry of the 19th and 20th century Tuscan paintings. The Italian Gardens was built by Bernardo Buontalenti between 1583 and 1593.
