Thank you!
The Vasari Corridor (Corridoio Vasariano) is an elevated enclosed passageway in Florence, which connects the Palazzo Vecchio with the Palazzo Pitti. In the centre of Florence you can still find several towers (or remnants thereof) which managed to survive civil wars and reprisals, lightning strikes and demolitions following city reshaping

    2. 2. The Vasari Corridor (Italian:Corridoio Vasariano) is anelevated enclosed passagewayin Florence, which connects thePalazzo Vecchio with thePalazzo Pitti.The Vasari Corridor was built in5 months by order of GrandDuke Cosimo I de Medici in1564, to the design of GiorgioVasari. It was commissioned inconnection with the marriage ofCosimos son, Francesco, withJohanna of Austria.The idea of an enclosedpassageway was motivated bythe Grand Dukes desire tomove freely between hisresidence and the governmentpalace, when, like mostmonarchs of the period, he feltinsecure in public, in his caseespecially because he hadreplaced the Republic ofFlorence.

    22. 22. Torre dei Manelli
    23. 23. Torre dei ManelliThis is the only survivingtower of the four oncelocated at the corners ofthe Old Bridge. It was builtin 12th Century by theMannelli, one of the mostancient families ofFlorence whose prestigewas still so great in 1565that even Cosimo I deMedici avoided to destroytheir tower during thebuilding of the VasariCorridor above the OldBridge and ordered theCorridor to turn around thetower.
    24. 24. After the Ponte Vecchio the Corridor passes over the loggiato of the churchof Santa Felicita; at that point it had a balcony, protected by a thick railing,looking into the interior of the church, in order to allow the Grand Dukesfamily to follow services without mixing with the populace.

    32. 32. The skyline of medieval italiancities was characterized bycountless raging towers, andFlorence made no exception: themost prominent families builttowers which not only were usedas (rather unconfortable...)homes and strongholds duringfrequent civil wars. They alsoembodied the familys power, andhad to be built taller than theones of enemy clans: manytowers collapsed during theirconstruction because the ownerswanted them to be too tall.In the centre of Florence you canstill find several towers (orremnants thereof) whichmanaged to survive civil wars andreprisals, lightning strikes anddemolitions following cityreshaping or changes in habits(from 14th Century the palacebecame symbol of a familyspower, and towers lost their role),but none of them retained untiltoday its original height

    36. 36. When Florence became afree city in 13th Centuryand a republic wasfounded, all towers werecropped to signify that theage of clans and civil warswas over: Florentinehistorian Giovanni Villani(1280-1348) wrote in hishistory of Florence NuovaCronica ("New Chronicle")that in 1251 the citygovernment decided «alltowers of Florence - andthere were in big numberwith a height of 70 meters -to be cropped down to 29meters or even less; thestones from the croppedtowers were used to buildhouses in Oltrarno».
    37. 37. Torre dei MarsiliMany towers existed oncein the quarters of Oltrarno:most of them have been notonly cropped in 1251, butalso further lowered in latertimes and now havebecome a part of palaces orother buildings, so that onlyfew of them can still berecognized as towers.
    38. 38. Torre dei Marsili
    39. 39. The Marsili wereamong the mostancient Florentinefamilies;they built this towerbetween 11th and12th Century. In 19thCentury the towerwas owned by thegoldsmith GiuseppeSorbi, whodecorated thefaçade with fourdella Robbia-styleterracottas(Annunciazione, twoAngels and Jesus)which still todaycharacterize thisTorre dei Marsili
    40. 40. Torre dei Marsili
    41. 41. Torre dei BelfredelliOne of the betterpreserved towers inthe city,characterized bythe small gardenon its side towardsBorgo San Jacopo.Belfredelli familyerected it in 12thCentury and ownedother buildings inthe surroundings.The uppermostfloor of the towerwas added wellafter 14th Century.Behind this tower isthe even tallerRamaglianti tower:it seems built onthe back of theBelfredelli tower,but between thetwo buildings is acentimeter-wide airspace.
    42. 42. the Corridor start in Palazzo Vecchio and reach Pitti Palace from Boboli Garden
    43. 43. The Palazzo Pitti, in Englishsometimes called the PittiPalace, is a vast mainlyRenaissance palace inFlorence. It is situated onthe south side of the RiverArno, a short distance fromthe Ponte Vecchio. The coreof the present palazzo datesfrom 1458 and wasoriginally the town residenceof Luca Pitti, an ambitiousFlorentine banker.The palace was bought bythe Medici family in 1549and became the chiefresidence of the rulingfamilies of the Grand Duchyof Tuscany. It grew as agreat treasure house aslater generations amassedpaintings, plates, jewelryand luxurious possessions.
