Florence is home to a host of museums and galleries displaying everything from Renaissance treasures to modern masterpieces. And for over two years now, Gucci Museo, located on the popular Piazza della Signoria in front of Palazzo Vecchio, has been adding to the appeal of this enchanting city.
Gucci Museo is housed in a ‘palazzo’, which dates back to 1337.
Showcasing the history of the Gucci fashion house, Gucci Museo opened its doors to the public on September 28, 2010, the day the brand marked its 90th anniversary. It is housed within the historic Palazzo della Mercanzia, which dates back to 1337, and this three-storey building has been converted into a fantastic art space, complete with a cafe and bookshop out front. The latter is managed in conjunction with Rizzoli, one of Italy's oldest publishing houses, and offers a wide array of titles in Italian, English and Japanese on design, fashion, cooking and the arts, plus some children's books.
