Florentine May: a programme of evening activies

On May 2010 the Palazzo Vecchio Museum, Monumental Apartments is open until midnight everyday, except for Thursday afternoons. In that occasion, the Museo dei Ragazzi offers to the public the possibility to discover some unusual sights of the Palazzo, that was built at the end of 13th century to house the Priors of the Guilds and the Gonfalonier of Justice, the city government during the Middle Age, and was turned into duke Cosimo’s Court during the 16th century.

Visit to the Secret Passages:
There are places in Palazzo Vecchio where time seems suspended and where it is easy for today’s visitors to relive the emotions of the past. Since 2000 the Museum has made many of these special places accessible to the public but they can only be visited by small groups accompanied by an expert guide:
The Stairway of the Duke of Athens – an escape route built inside the thick walls of the Palazzo between 1342 and 1343 that exits from a tiny door in Via della Ninna.
The Tesoretto di Cosimo I and the Studiolo di Francesco I, located one on top of the other next to the Salone dei Cinquecento.
The Trusses of the ceiling of the Salone dei Cinquecento, double rows of Vasarian trusses holding up the roof in the Salone dei Cinquecento and the imposing gilded lacunar ceiling of this hall.
When and timetable: on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays at 6.30 p.m. and 9 p.m.
