Maps of Florence
The Fondazione produces special maps of the city containing thematic itineraries, to mark not only the major exhibitions held at the Palazzo Strozzi (Bronzino’s Florence, The Florence of Money, the Florence of Beauty, Archaeology in Tuscany), but also such significant events and occasions as the 150th anniversary of Italian unity or the Vasari and Ammannati centenaries.
The maps are designed to encourage Florentines and tourists to follow fascinating itineraries that also include many of the lesser-known sites associated with given themes. Printed in numerous copies, these maps can be picked up at tourist information points and at the many sites involved in the initiative, are also available in pdf on this website. This simple and effective yet culturally valid tool points up Florence and Tuscany’s unique nature as a huge open-air museum.

The Passports and the Guides
“Let’s get out of the exhibition and into the city” is the motto we use to explain the concept behind the passports and guides that Palazzo Strozzi produces to link its various exhibitions with the city and to encourage tourists and residents alike to explore Florence and its surroundings. These elegant yet handy booklets provide information on the exhibitions held on the Piano Nobile and in the Strozzina, but they also extend the theme to cover the city at large, its province and indeed the entire region of Tuscany.
