Albani and San Giovanni's living rooms
In 1633 Prince Giovan Carlo announced a competition between Giovanni da San Giovanni and Francesco Albani to decide who would paint the Room of Apollo located inside Palazzo Pitti.
The competition was won by Giovanni da San Giovanni thanks to the masterpiece painted in the second of the two sitting rooms on the side of the Villa’s entrance hall: “The expulsion of Hebe and the assumption of Ganymede to the Olympus”.
From the main entrance hall you reach the Salone della Guardia. The attention of the guests is captured by multiple elements: from the ceiling decorations depicting the three coats of arms of the Medici, Panciatichi and Corsini families to the monumental stone fireplace that is still in perfect conditions.
As a lounge room, aperitif, lunch or dinner area, for an open bar, or even just a spacious ballroom, the Salone della Guardia is able to meet the needs of each individual event.
Galleria del Pandolfo Sacchi
The Gallery is one of the most impressive, frescoed rooms in Tuscany. Thanks to its beauty, flexibility and capacity, this space is incredibly special and one of a kind. Due to its size of over 215 square meters, the Gallery can meet the needs of different events.
Overlooking the Italian Garden and the Chianti countryside with its many big windows, the Gallery offers a splendid view of the external part of the Villa. Its inner part is even more impressive, with frescoed walls depicting four female allegories: Poetry, Painting, Music and Medicine. The roof is also magnificent, frescoed by Pandolfo Sacchi and Passignano, as it shows a tribute to rural deities and to Cronos, God of Time.
Southern living rooms
These three living rooms were originally the private apartments of the princess. They are decorated with the frescoed scenes of the two epic poems: Ariosto’s “Orlando Furioso” and Tasso’s “Gerusalemme Liberata”.
With their beautiful, coffered ceilings, the Southern living rooms extend one after the another so that the visitors pass through the “Hall of Putti”, through the Yellow Lounge and the three living rooms.
Yellow and Gordigiani's Halls
Also known as the “Love and Psyche Hall”, due to the frescoes depicting the myth told by Apuleius, the Yellow lounge wasconceived to become the Princess Anna’s bedroom and is still decorated with yellow silk moirèe that covers all the walls.
Elegant and harmonious, the yellow lounge is connected to the succession of halls through the south side doors and can therefore be used at every moment during the event. The Salotto Gordigiani owes its name to the painting by the Florentine painter Michele Gordigiani that decorated it. Simple and spacious, the room is characterized by two windows overlooking the Pandolfo Sacchi Gallery, ideal as another ballroom, lounge area or much more.
Primavera and Putti's Halls
Adjacent to the entrance of the Villa, this room has vaulted ceilings, much like the hallway entrance, and can therefore become one larger space. Placed between the courtyard and the façade, it has four large windows and takes its name from the painted flower decorations. The Putti Hall also known as the Hall of Games was painted by Cecco Bravo in 1632 and features a series of frescoes that depict games typically usually played by children, also known as “putti”.
The impressive, coffered ceiling shows twelve images of the “putti” playing games of the time. Rare and wonderful iconography can be seen: the social classes of the time (from aristocrats to peasants) joined in the games and partook in the country life. This, together with the Spring and Southern Living Rooms, are ideal for aperitifs and ceremonies in case of bad weather or in the winter months.
