Pitti Palace is the world’s most complete museum complex, its holdings include paintings, sculptures and applied art works from all periods of history (ancient, modern and contemporary). It moreover boasts the world’s most beautiful gardens (Boboli), the Medici treasures (the Silverworks and Porcelain Museums), and the Palace holdings (its Royal Apartments, Living Quarters, Tapestry Collection, and Carriage Museum). This is the Complete Official Guide to the Museums of Pitti Palace. It opens with the early architectural history of the building (Pitti Palace, the royal residence of three dynasties), as recounted by Laura Baldini Giusti. Then Marco Chiarini goes on to cover the Palatine Gallery, while the Royal Apartments and recently restored Tapestry Collection are commented by Fausta Navarro, and the complex Gallery of Modern Art by Carlo Sisi. Laura Baldini Giusti takes up the Bourbon and New Palatine Quarters, the Winter Quarters (or Apartments of the Duchess of Aosta), and the Quarters of the Prince of Naples. The Costume Gallery is described by Caterina Chiarelli; the Silverworks Museum by Marilena Mosco; Boboli Gardens by Litta Medri and Giorgio Galletti; the Porcelain Museum by Marilena Mosco; and the Carriage Museum by Fausta Navarro.
