Palazzo Vecchio - the symbol of the Medici

Palazzo Vecchio FlorenceDesigned in 1298-99 by Arnolfo di Cambio as the seat of the Republic Government, in just three years the main body of the building  was completed, but work was prolonged until 1315. It was first called Palazzo dei Priori because it was used by the representatives of the Gonfalonier of Justice and the priors of the Guilds. At that time an enormous bell at the top of the tower called the citizens to gather or to warn them of danger. The building continued to maintain its political importance even under the Medici rule when the building took the name of Palazzo della Signoria. Duke Cosimo I lived here from 1540 to 1565, but when the Medici moved to their new residence in Palazzo Pitti, it took the name of Palazzo Vecchio. From 1865 to 1871, when Florence was the capital of Italy, the building was the seat of Italian Parliament. Today it is the Town Hall. The exterior is a classic example of 14th-century civil architecture.
