Palazzo Strozzi

Italian palazzos (palaces) were more than just places to live – they were symbols of a family’s wealth and social standing. Palazzo Strozzi has the three-part structure common to Florentine palazzos. The rusticated stone base on the ground floor, with its plain windows, would have served as the family’s place of business.

The living areas above have a more ornamental treatment of their facades; pairs of arched windows are united by a single stone arch that spans each pair and a deep cornice caps the entire structure.
