The Palazzo Pitti was built in 1458, it was once home (yes i said home) to a Banker, then the Royals and was also a power base for Napoleon in the 18th Century. Pretty impressive right? I'm sure it's History is greater than i wrote but they are the fact i know ;)
The Palazzo Pitti is now a Modern Art Gallery, Royal Apartments, Silver Museum and much more.
I was lucky enough to visit when there was a temporary Karl Largerfeld Photography Exhibition on. Karl's "Visions of Fashion" exhibit fit right in with the renaissance style moving through the museum.
