Do you know that Florence has been the Capital of Italy for five years? In 1865, the Kingdom of Italy just united under the reigning Savoia family had not re-conquered his natural capital Rome yet, which was still firmly in the hands of the Papacy.
Palazzo Medici Riccardi is the prototype of civil Renaissance architecture. Situated in via Cavour, which was once called via Larga (or large street) the Palace is one of the most beautiful in the city.
