Foundations

Palazzo Strozzi

Established in July 2006, the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi marks a significant break in the way cultural institutions have been run in Italy. It is an independent public-private foundation guided by an autonomous Board of Directors appointed by its founding partners.

The challenge facing the Fondazione from the outset has been to bring international quality exhibitions and cultural events to Florence and Tuscany, and to “give the Palazzo back to the city and the region.”

On the palazzo’s Piano Nobile and the Strozzina area the Fondazione organises art exhibitions ranging from the art of the ancient world via the Renaissance to the modern and contemporary era. The Fondazione also hosts a permanent exhibition on the history of the Palazzo Strozzi, a café and a museum shop on the ground floor, giving onto the palazzo’s Renaissance courtyard where it organises concerts, performance art, installations of contemporary art, theatrical performances and a great deal more. The programmes and collateral events accompanying every exhibition ensures that Palazzo Strozzi is an exciting experience for all its visitors, especially young people, families and children.
