The Gallery is called “Palatina” because it is located in the “Palazzo” of the ruling family, the imposing Pitti Palace, royal residence of the Medici, of the Lorraine and lastly of the Savoy dynasty. The collection of paintings, arranged in rooms sumptuously decorated with baroque stuccoes and frescoes, is a rare and precious example of a private princely gallery. The monumental royal apartments, joined to the gallery, show furnishings of the time when they were used by the Savoy, Kings of Italy.
In the early 19th century the Lorraine Grand Dukes decided to display the huge collection of paintings, acquired in the 17th and 18th centuries by the last Medici members, in the representative rooms on the first floor of the palace.
The collection was enlarged thanks to legacies and acquisitions at the time of the Grand Duke Cosimo III and his son Grand Prince Ferdinando, refined collector.
The museum was opened to visitors in 1828, during the reign of Leopoldo II.
The Gallery shows the taste of the Medici and of the Lorraine collections, displayed according to principles and decorations of a princely official gallery and including mainly works of the 16th and 17th centuries.
The Gallery houses the most significant collection in the world of works by Raphael, along with a rich group of Venetian works, such as many masterpieces by Titian.
