  palazzo vecchio
by doug48

this famous landmark was the political center of the florentines. built in 1322 it is florence's town hall and once home to cosimo I. cosimo remodelled the interior of the palazzo in 1540. some works of art in the palazzo are the "sala dei gigli", verrochio's "putto with dolphin", bronzino's "cappella di eleonora", and michelangelo's "victory". for more information check out my florence page. open daily.
