|Palazzo degli Affari|
Planned by Architect Pierluigi Spadolini and opened in 1974, Palazzo degli Affari is a modern venue successfully combining contemporary architecture with a more modern technology.
Located directly in front of the central railway station of Santa Maria Novella and surrounded by a large, centuries-old park, Palazzo degli Affari is only a few steps away from Piazza del Duomo and from the most important Florence monuments and palaces.
It is a flexible and multifunctional venue, built on 5 floors, with an overall capacity of 1,800 people inside its 4,000 sq m, where any kind of event can take place - from conventions to exhibitions, from training courses to haute-couture events, from working lunches to gala dinners.
Inside Palazzo degli Affari you can find a reception point and a tourist information desk to receive assistance concerning museum, hotel and transportation reservations, as well as how to move in Florence.
