The Spadolini Pavilion, built between 1974 and 1976 and planned by Florentine architect Pierluigi Spadolini, is the main building to organise fairs & congresses in Florence, and a multifunctional area thanks to its large and free surfaces, located inside one of the most important monumental areas of the city. Built with pre-fabricated technical features, the Spadolini Pavilion features plain and creased-shaped aluminium and stainless steel elements, creating a strong chiaroscuro effect, obtained thanks to sophisticated bronze shades. It is built on three levels, one of them featuring separate and modular volumes, for a total of 25,620 sq m, with a series of side and central stairs and external ramps, allowing easy access and circulation and making it possible to hold more than one event at the same time.
Various facilities complete the services inside this pavilion, suitable to host big congresses, as well as small meetings. Among them offices, refreshment bars and advanced computer facilities, such as the 4th -generation Wi-Fi system, offering a safe and high-density connectivity for all attendees.
