To the right of the main entrance of the Teatro Della Pergola, at number 12, a plaque recalls that on the evening of March 14, 1847, Giuseppe Verdi conducted the first performance of Shakespeare's Macbeth. The Teatro Della Pergola was born in the seventeenth century thanks to the initiative of the Accademia degli Immobili, whose aims were artistic and cultural, oriented to different disciplines: music, mathematics, acting, reading, and representation of comedies.   Before becoming a splendid temple of culture, the large room housed a pulling house owned by the Arte Della Lana, one of the seven significant arts of the guilds of arts and crafts of Florence in the Renaissance period. The works of the Theater, designed by the architect Ferdinando Tacca, were started in 1656 and concluded in 1661 to host some of the celebratory events of Cosimo III's wedding with Margherita d'Orleans.   In a wooden structure, the Theater had a large stage. It exhibited three tiers of boxes supported by a large loggia, making it the first architectural example of an "Italian" theater. A series of rooms and courtyards made the environment soundproof from the neighboring streets. It could accommodate over a thousand people, housed in the boxes and in the loggia open to the stalls, where the audience sat on fixed benches and in two distinct sectors to separate the male audience from the female one. In the center of the room, there was the area reserved for the most illustrious members of the Academy.   In the nineteenth century, La Pergola expanded its activities to singing, dance, and opera, setting up high-quality programs with Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Rossini, Pacini, Ricci, etc. Since 1925, the Teatro Della Pergola has been a national monument.   There are many other points of interest in this street. At number 59, you will discover the plaque affixed to the building, reminding us that Benvenuto Cellini created Perseus in those environments and died here in 1471.   Discover San Giovanni [post_title] => An Entire Building for Sale in a Prestigious Street of Old Town Florence [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => an-entire-building-for-sale-in-a-prestigious-street-of-old-town-florence [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2021-12-21 15:52:13 [post_modified_gmt] => 2021-12-21 14:52:13 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://victoria-house.it/?post_type=estate_property&p=39726 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => estate_property [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [1] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 38586 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2021-11-04 16:15:47 [post_date_gmt] => 2021-11-04 15:15:47 [post_content] => The Palace is right in the middle between Ponte Vecchio and Piazza Pitti.

Palazzo Pitti is an imposing Renaissance palace in the Oltrarno area, a short distance from Ponte Vecchio. The original nucleus of the building dates back to 1458. It was then purchased by the Medici family in 1549. Again from 1737, it became the main residence of the Habsburg-Lorraine Grand Dukes of Tuscany. Following the unification of Italy, it played the role of the Royal Palace for the House of Savoia Family in the five years, when Florence was the capital of the Kingdom of Italy (1865-70). In 1919 the Palace was donated to the State to become one of the largest State Museums in Italy. Since then, the internal areas divided into different specific museums:  
  • the Palatine Gallery with masterpieces by Raffaello and Tiziano,
  • the Royal Apartments,
  • the Gallery of Modern Art,
  • the Treasury of the Grand Dukes,
  • the Museum of Fashion and Costume (the largest Italian museum dedicated to fashion),
  • the Porcelain Museum,
  • the Carriage Museum.
  The palace is adorned by the extraordinary and enormous Boboli Gardens, one of the world's great masterpieces of Italian gardens. Today, this whole area (Palazzo Pitti and Giardino di Boboli) is a privileged place for major cultural events. The Oltrarno, where the apartment is located, is one of the most beloved areas of Florence. This district can be reached easily, crossing the numerous bridges over the Arno river that connect the two sides of the city. The quarter also incorporates Piazza Santo Spirito, Piazza del Carmine, Piazza dei Nerli. The museums and churches hosted in these squares display valuable masterpieces.

To the right of the main entrance of the Teatro Della Pergola, at number 12, a plaque recalls that on the evening of March 14, 1847, Giuseppe Verdi conducted the first performance of Shakespeare's Macbeth. The Teatro Della Pergola was born in the seventeenth century thanks to the initiative of the Accademia degli Immobili, whose aims were artistic and cultural, oriented to different disciplines: music, mathematics, acting, reading, and representation of comedies.   Before becoming a splendid temple of culture, the large room housed a pulling house owned by the Arte Della Lana, one of the seven significant arts of the guilds of arts and crafts of Florence in the Renaissance period. The works of the Theater, designed by the architect Ferdinando Tacca, were started in 1656 and concluded in 1661 to host some of the celebratory events of Cosimo III's wedding with Margherita d'Orleans.   In a wooden structure, the Theater had a large stage. It exhibited three tiers of boxes supported by a large loggia, making it the first architectural example of an "Italian" theater. A series of rooms and courtyards made the environment soundproof from the neighboring streets. It could accommodate over a thousand people, housed in the boxes and in the loggia open to the stalls, where the audience sat on fixed benches and in two distinct sectors to separate the male audience from the female one. In the center of the room, there was the area reserved for the most illustrious members of the Academy.   In the nineteenth century, La Pergola expanded its activities to singing, dance, and opera, setting up high-quality programs with Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Rossini, Pacini, Ricci, etc. Since 1925, the Teatro Della Pergola has been a national monument.   There are many other points of interest in this street. At number 59, you will discover the plaque affixed to the building, reminding us that Benvenuto Cellini created Perseus in those environments and died here in 1471.   Discover San Giovanni [post_title] => An Entire Building for Sale in a Prestigious Street of Old Town Florence [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => an-entire-building-for-sale-in-a-prestigious-street-of-old-town-florence [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2021-12-21 15:52:13 [post_modified_gmt] => 2021-12-21 14:52:13 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://victoria-house.it/?post_type=estate_property&p=39726 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => estate_property [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [comment_count] => 0 [current_comment] => -1 [found_posts] => 55 [max_num_pages] => 10 [max_num_comment_pages] => 0 [is_single] => [is_preview] => [is_page] => [is_archive] => 1 [is_date] => [is_year] => [is_month] => [is_day] => [is_time] => [is_author] => [is_category] => [is_tag] => [is_tax] => 1 [is_search] => [is_feed] => [is_comment_feed] => [is_trackback] => [is_home] => [is_privacy_policy] => [is_404] => [is_embed] => [is_paged] => [is_admin] => [is_attachment] => [is_singular] => [is_robots] => [is_favicon] => [is_posts_page] => [is_post_type_archive] => 1 [query_vars_hash:WP_Query:private] => 9529e6014210bc694489359a3a00c575 [query_vars_changed:WP_Query:private] => [thumbnails_cached] => [stopwords:WP_Query:private] => [compat_fields:WP_Query:private] => Array ( [0] => query_vars_hash [1] => query_vars_changed ) [compat_methods:WP_Query:private] => Array ( [0] => init_query_flags [1] => parse_tax_query ) )
