Celebrating the 150 years since Florence was named capital of the Kingdom of Italy and Palazzo Spini Feroni was chosen to be the city hall in 1865, the exhibition will include prestigious works of art and documents from museums and private collections around the world and will tell the intricate stories behind the palace and its residents.

While the set showcases how the building’s historical and architectural value are extremely important for the city of Florence, it also brings the past into the present and highlights the close connection between a magnificent example of Medieval architecture as Palazzo Spini Feroni and the city of Florence, reflecting Italian lifestyle, creativity and elegance.
