Palazzo Strozzi Information

Palazzo Strozzi - Art Gallery in Florence.

Built in 1538 for a once prominent rival of the Medici family, the Palazzo Strozzi, located in Florence’s historic city center, is now a venue that temporarily houses three major contemporary exhibitions each year.

Past exhibitions at Palazzo Strozzi include Americans in Florence, an Impressionist art exhibit featuring famous American painters such as John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt. Not only is the palace a spot for various artistic and cultural events including fashion shows, movie screenings, and lectures, but also it functions as headquarters for The Institute of Humanist Studies, the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, the Gabinetto Viesseux, and the Renaissance Studies Institute.

Furthermore, the venue is known for its programs and events created specifically for children and families. A main feature of the palace is its central, open courtyard. Within the courtyard and open daily is Café Giacosa, where visitors can grab a drink or a bite to eat before or after seeing the exhibits. A permanent fixture of the Palazzo Strozzi is an exhibition dedicated to the Strozzi family and the history of the palace.

The cultural center hopes to soon offer performances and free musical concerts to the public in an attempt to further engage their wide range of users.

Palazzo Strozzi User Reviews

When all else fails, Palazzo Strozzi prevails
Tania Z. Apr 27, 2013
Centrally located, Palazzo Strozzi provides an ongoing set of cultural stimuli as attractive to Florentines as to foreign visitors. Its temporary exhibitions are as varied - Dalì, Picasso, Mirò; Italian art in the Thirties; The Springtime of the Renaissance (currently) - as they are welcoming and user-friendly: guests find a wealth of historical and contextual information surrounding and supporting the art on display, with a space dedicated entirely to the learning experience of younger patrons (under 12). Staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and leads insightful guided tours to small and larger groups alike. Visit the gift shop before stepping out of the courtyard to complete your Palazzo Strozzi experience. In addition to postcards and exhibition memorabilia, you'll find locally-crafted jewelry, there, household accessories, and even pamphlet-style recipe books that bring centuries-old gastronomic Florentine traditions to your fingers -- and your kitchen. A reliable bet any time of year.
Exciting find
Claire M. Dec 4, 2012
This palazzo is close to where I live, and was an exciting early find because there was a dance practice going on in the open courtyard that had drawn quite a crowd. It was a really exciting find and somewhere we frequently stop in to see what it going on during a given evening. There has been live music, informal dance performances, aperitivos for an exhibit opening, and usually a group of people hanging out enjoying the hidden palazzo courtyard. The cafe is also a great place to work because of the free wifi and many options of sandwiches and pastries!
