Photo library in the Palazzo Grifoni
The Photo Library has open-shelf access as usual on the piano nobile of its new home. Offices and Special Collections (large format photos, specialized literature) have been installed on the ground floor. A seminar room for around 45 people is also available on the piano nobile for meetings held by the Institute and the Photo Library itself.
We look forward to welcoming you to Palazzo Grifoni.
Residence of Ugolino Grifoni, secretary of Grand-Duke Cosimo I, the Palazzo Grifoni was erected by Bartolomeo Ammannati in one of the most prominent sites in Florence between 1561 and 1565. The façade on the Piazza Santissima Annunziata was completed in 1772. The present interior with representative staircase and fresco decoration on the piano nobile goes back to the Budini Gattai family who acquired the palazzo in 1890.
