The Origin of the Renaissance Palace Typology in Florence, 1382-1432
20 January 2021 - 18:00
Virtual Wednesday Lecture, on Zoom
by Lorenzo Vigotti
The Italian palazzo is among the emerging typologies that, in the early fifteenth century, revolutionized the architecture and the urban fabric of the European cities, up until the colonial period. Thus, in the Western tradition, the palazzo’s arrival coincided with the very image of the Renaissance complete with its new bourgeois lifestyle. Prof. Vigotti's research identifies the stylistic progress - and the related change in society and therefore in taste - during the year of the Albizi oligarchy in Florence, leading to the definition of a new residence and paving the way to the construction of Palazzo Medici.
