Overview

Guided tour by one of the most relevant characters of the Palace. Giorgio Vasari: Who better then than Giorgio Vasari himself to help visitors to Palazzo Vecchio understand the extraordinary undertaking that was asked of him in turning a haphazardly erected building into a lavish palace? The actor who impersonates Giorgio Vasari tells visitors about the Duke’s cultural policy decisions and reveals his own exceptional technical skill and that of his collaborators in creating Cosimo’s palace in record time. Lady Isabel de Remoso: The Queen favored the Duchess Eleonora di Toledo, Spain's Isabel de Reinoso, accompanying guests to the sumptuous rooms of the new Medici Palace. His words evoke the grand celebrations and events that took place in the Great Hall, the services offered to the distinguished guests who passed at court, and the daily habits of a "family" is so important. In this sense, an emphasis is placed on the rooms of Eleonora, her ladies, the Princes and the activities that enlivened every day.
