About the Museum

The Museum of Palazzo Davanzati – also known as the Museo dell’Antica Casa Fiorentina – was opened as a State museum in 1956. The impressive palazzo, which was the 14th-century residence of the Davizzi family of wealthy merchants and bankers, overlooks the namesake piazza once populated by ancient tower-houses. The museum’s various rooms are decorated with period furnishings, wall paintings and artworks, which provide a fascinating window into Florentine life centuries ago.
