Palazzo Buontalenti

Palazzo Buontalenti (also known in Pistoia as Palazzo Sozzifanti) is an interesting example of Florentine architecture from the end of the sixteenth century, in the historic center of Pistoia, located opposite Palazzo de ’Rossi, home of the Caript Foundation. Imposing in size, but in fact little perceived due to the proximity of the buildings around it, it presents a harmonious and severe internal courtyard characterized by two systems of porticoed loggia with a double order of columns. The name of the building is due to the alleged involvement in the planning phase of the famous Florentine Bernardo Buontalenti, a trusted architect of the Grand Duke of Tuscany. Having long since been abandoned by the family, the Palace has had several uses over the years, before its recent restoration. Since 2013, the Caript Foundation has been involved in the creation of exhibition events at its ground floor spaces. Now Palazzo Buontalenti is configured as the headquarters of the Fondazione Pistoia Musei dedicated to temporary exhibitions, with particular attention to modern and contemporary art.
