Piazza della Santissima Annunziata is widely regarded as one of the finest Renaissance squares in Florence. It is home to the Church of Santissima Annunziate, founded by the Servite order in 1250 and later rebuilt by Michelozzo in the mid to late 15th Century. It contains some fine frescoes and panels by well-known Mannerist artists.
Piazza della Santissima Annunziata
Florence is a vast and beautiful monument to the Renaissance, the artistic and cultural reawakening of the 15th Century. Writers such as Dante, Petrarch and Machiavelli contributed to its proud literary heritage but it was the paintings and sculptures of artists, such as Botticelli, Michelangelo and Donatelli, that turned the city into one of the world's greatest artistic capitals.
