Have you ever heard of Palazzo Pitti? It’s one of the most sumptuous palaces of Florence and its history is unbelievable: built by Luca Pitti, in response to the Medici mansion in Via Larga wanted by Cosimo the Helder, it was supposed to be the most beautiful, magnificent and majestic palace of Florence! Unfortunately, with the financial ruin of the Pitti family and the numerous debts, the building was left to itself and the works were interrupted in 1465. Almost 100 years later, Eleonora di Toledo, wife of Grand Duke Cosimo I, bought the famous palace to realize the new residence of the family and it seems almost a joke that the Medici have become the owners of that building!
