Pitti Palace Florence Palazzo Pitti was built in the middle of '400 by Luca Fancelli, on demand of Luca Pitti, who wanted to show his power in front of the Family of Medici, building a magnificent Palace. When the Pitti Family fell in misfortune, Cosimo I de' Medici bought the Palace, in 1549, and Palazzo Pitti became the Medici Family residence. The Palace was enlarged, on Bartolomeo Ammannati's plan, and has changed until 1600.
