the Palazzo Spini Feroni in 1958 2015 was a sym­bolic year for Florence, in that it was the 150th an­niver­sary of its sta­tus as the cap­i­tal of Italy. To com­mem­o­rate, the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo has staged an ex­hi­bi­tion in its home, Palazzo Spini Feroni – known once upon a time as the seat of the Florence City Coun­cil. Ti­tled ‘A Palace and the City’, this ex­hi­bi­tion fol­lows the his­tory of the iconic build­ing, from the time it was pri­vately owned by aris­to­cratic fam­i­lies to when it was a dra­matic lux­ury ho­tel, and to its present state as the brand’s head­quar­ters and ate­lier – all told through pres­ti­gious art­works and arte­facts, an­gled by the in­put of set de­signer Mau­r­izio Balò. Un­til April 3 at the Palazzo Spini Feroni, Florence. www.ferragamo.com/museo
