Palazzo Buontalenti, named after the architect who designed it, Bernardo Buontalenti, is better known as the Medici Casino of San Marco, due to the indissoluble link to the family that dominated Florence for over three centuries. The palace began to flourish during the spiritually and intellectually vivacious period known as Humanism, of which Florence wasthe undiscussed cradle during the 1400s. Each reference to the Medici family in Florence creates a connection with the fame and splendour of this glorious house, whose support and love for the arts and knowledge contributed throughout the centuries to the transformation of Florence into an immortal icon of beauty and culture.
