Using the palazzo magnificent setting, Ai Weiwei has presented some of his work in a very unique way. Usually you see one of his over the top huge exhibits some where such as a acre of pumpkin seeds. However this one looks at different ideas and using many media making it simply spectacular. Wood, plastic, steel, bronze, bamboo, paper, legos... More

Through January 2017. Don't miss seeing this important artist and his important messages against censorship and for democracy. I spent four hours there. Kids activities kit available at Info Desk/ coat room. Earthquake video graphic. Don't miss weiwei's selfie section. Get half off with your Uffuzi ticket.

Ai Wewei exhibition was fantastic in the historical scenario of this Palace. The red boats on the facade is a great idea

Ai Weiwei is really a very important artist - his range of art is wide and impressing, but also touching and moving. Visit his exhibition "LIbero" -it is open until February 2017 - worth it!!

Nice exhibition in the pallazo Strozzi. If you have a ticket of the Uffizi gallery you get a 50% discount and you have to pay 6 euros.

A great contrast to the Renaissance art on offer across the city, this exhibition was a highlight of our stay. Each exhibit has space around it so you can enjoy it explore it - the information boards really help add meaning to them. I think it was 12 Euros, but we went in via our Firenze Card. I'd give it...

The Weiwei modern art exhibit is a refreshing change of pace compared to all the historic artwork we saw in Italy. Housed in a the 15th century Palazzo Strozzi, Weiwei's multimedia art takes up two floors. He's a controversial Chinese dissident with a wicked sense of humor. Perhaps most shocking is his series of middle finger photographs taken in front... More

Visited the Palazzo while it had been taken over by the Ai Weiwei exhibit. A wonderful combination of modern art displayed in an grand old space. The exhibit was very well curated and the Palazzo still showed it's excellent bones.

It may seem strange that in a city of Renaissance masterpieces we should want to see this exhibition. But it's because of the juxtaposition that we went. And we weren't disappointed. The place lends itself to Ai Weiwei's installations - large airy spaces. The top floor was exceptional - the snake made from school bags accompanied by shocking film and... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
