|Maria Maddalena Macchiavelli, wife of Marchese Filippo Corsini, purchased the
Palace from the Grand Duke Ferdinando II de' Medici in 1649.
Palace which was a "Casino" (a little house surrounded by a large garden that
extended itself to the banks of the Arno River today known as Lungarno Corsini),
belonged to the Ardinghelli family. It was then bought by the Medici and finally
by its current owners.
The Corsini family residence is a late baroque
structure as we can see from the roofs decorated with statues and terracotta
vases, - a novelty in Renaissance Florence, - and from the "U" shaped courtyard
opened towards the river bank. The Palace was conceived in its present form by
Bartolomeo Corsini (1622-1685) son of Filippo and Maria Maddalena Macchiavelli;
it was his own son Filippo (1647-1705), who then expanded the portion of the
building that extends towards Ponte S. Trinita. The building works on the Palace
lasted 50 years without a break. The decorations that were created between 1692
and 1700 reveal one of the finest moments in the history of Florentine painting.
Important artists were called by the Corsini family to decorate the elegant
apartments on the first floor where the Galleria Aurora, the Salone, the Sala da
Ballo and other important reception rooms are located. The most famous artists
were Anton Domenico Gabbiani, Alessandro Gherardini and Pier Dandini.
