Palagio di Parte Guelfa

This palace of 14th century origin, which was restored at the beginning of the 20th century, is commonly called the Palagio di Parte Guelfa. The restoration was carried out using old stone saved from the 19th century demolition of the Mercato Vecchio. Of artistic interest inside, there is the Sala dell'Udienza (or Sala dei Capitani) dating back to the beginning of the 15th century, and the Salone del Brunelleschi, which was subsequently altered by Vasari. Above one of the doors there is a Madonna with Child by Luca della Robbia, which came from the demolished church of San Pier Buonconsiglio.
