HISTORY OF THE PALACE:

The fourteenth-century Palazzo, once home to a wealthy merchant and banker family known as the Davizzi, presents its impressive façade over the piazza originally populated by ancient case-torre (tower-homes). 

Constructed in the mid 1300’s, the Palazzo is an amalgamation of these case-torre and other properties belonging to the Davizzi family.  However, the Palazzo owes its name to another family, the Davanzati, who, after purchasing the Palazzo in 1578, embellished the façade with a large coat of arms representing the dynastic family crest.

The Davanzati family lived here until 1838, the year marked by the tragic death of the last family heir Carlo.

In 1904, the Palazzo was purchased by the antiquarian Elia Volpi, who, after re-opening it in 1910 as Museo dell’antica casa fiorentina, deemed the building a stunning example of the exquisitely “Florentine” taste which, at the time, was much sought after by both Italians and foreigners. During the first half of the twentieth-century, however, the Palazzo witnessed a series of tumultuous sales, purchases and bankruptcies of antique dealers. 

This came to end in 1956 when the Palazzo was acquired by the Italian Stated and was re-opened as a public museum.  While the Palazzo remains endowed with the character of a medieval home, its present furnishings consist of works from the repositories of various Florentine galleries and by acquisitions and donations. Today, the museum houses a diverse collection of sculpture, painting, furniture, maoliche, and lace. 

The vast entrance of the loggia leads into a picturesque courtyard that provides access to the upper floors.  

On each floor, the arrangement of the rooms follows an identical floorplan: the Sala Madornale, corresponding to the entire length of the façade; the drawing room; the study; and a bedroom distinguished by open-beam ceilings and faux upholstery ornamentation. These domestic quarters, in addition to the various agiamenti (toilets or washrooms) and the kitchen on the third floor, not only illustrate the comforts of the noble families that lived in Palazzo Davanzati but also represents a magnificent and singular example of a medieval Florentine home.
