Appartamenti Monumentali di Palazzo Pitti


These royal apartments, situated on the second floor of the right wings of Palazzo Pitti, are a suite of richly decorated and furnished rooms.

They served as the official residence of the Medici and the Lorraine families, as well as of Vittorio Emanuele II in the years when Florence was capital (1865-71).

The current appearance dates from the renovation done by Umberto and Margherita di Savoia. This royal couple of the House of Savoy crowded the rooms with furniture, paintings, tapestries and other objects, largely taken from the palaces of Parma and Lucca.

The tour begins in the Sala Bianca, an enormous room named from its bright light and stuccoed decorations by the Albertorelli brothers.

Next you will see the Sala di Bona, the only room to survive intact from the early-17th c., with frescoes by Bernardino Poccetti.

The series of rooms that follow this hall made up the apartment of King Umberto I di Savoia.

The Sala dei Pappagalli leads into the apartment of Queen Margherita. Both apartments are decorated with rich old wall hangings, carpets and furniture.

After you return to Sala dei Pappagalli, you pass into the chapel (until the turn of the 18th c. this was the bedroom in the apartment of Ferdinando dei Medici), one of the few examples of late-Baroque decoration in Palazzo Pitti.

Next come the Sala Celeste, Sala del Trono and Sala Verde.
