Concierge.com's insider take:

Though Florence is known the world over as one of Italy's great città d'arte, it had long suffered from a dearth of temporary exhibition spaces. That is, until 2006, when Palazzo Strozzi—the imposing home of Renaissance banker and power-monger Filippo Strozzi—was renovated with this purpose in mind. Under the tutelage of dynamic British-Canadian general director James Bradburne, the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi has quickly become a rival to Palazzo Grassi in Venice or the Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome for the quality of its shows, which have taken in subjects as diverse as Cézanne, the history of fashion, and Chinese art from the Han to Tang dynasties. The galleries are also child-friendly (still a rarity in Italy), with kid-oriented panels and interactive discovery rooms. The Strozzina gallery in the former stables downstairs is dedicated to more contemporary exhibitions, sometimes thematically linked to the shows upstairs. Concerts and film series are also staged here, and there's a café in the grand central courtyard, which is a free Wi-Fi zone.
