The Palazzo Vecchio (translated into Spanish, Old Palace) is located in the Plaza de la Señoría, in Florence, Italy. It houses offices of the City Council (Comune di Firenze) although the main rooms are open to the public as a museum where you can see murals and paintings by famous artists of the Florentine school such as Domenico Ghirlandaio, Bronzino and Giorgio Vasari, among others.
Originally called Palazzo dei Priori or Palagio Novo, the name was changed to that of "Palacio de la Señoría", the main organism of the Florentine Republic, in the 15th century. Later it became known as "Doge's Palace", when it established its residence Cosme I de Médici in 1540. Then, in 1565, it would begin to be called Palazzo Vecchio after Cosme moved to the Pitti Palace.
The first construction is attributed to Arnolfo di Cambio, which started in 1299 incorporating the old Foraboschi tower on the facade. After the death of Arnolfo, in 1302, the palace was finished by other artists, in 1314. The exterior form of the building is that of a parallelepiped, and on the main facade is the Tower of Arnolfo, one of the emblems of the city . In 1400 the tower and the inner garden had to be rebuilt, as they were in danger of collapsing.
Among its most important rooms, the Hall of the Five Hundred stands out, whose mural decoration was entrusted to Leonardo da Vinci (The Battle of Anghiari) and Michelangelo (The Battle of Cascina). Unfortunately, none of them were finished, and the walls were covered by other frescoes in the later decoration of Giorgio Vasari.
