OVERVIEW:

padiglioni-fortezza-arsenale

 

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.

A masterpiece of the Renaissance architecture, the Fortezza da Basso – or of St. John the Baptist, as a tribute to the Patron Saint of Florence

was planned by Antonio da Sangallo il Giovane, commissioned by Alessandro de’ Medici, the first Duke of Florence, and built between 1534 and 1536. The Fortezza has been the main Congress & Exhibition Center venue for Florence and for central Italy since 1967, being strategically located in the historic city centre.

The Fortezza da Basso has an overall surface of over 80,000 sq m – of which 55,000 are roofed – and is an ideal place for fairs, such as the well renowned International Handicrafts Trade Fair, and congresses with a high number of participants as well as being a privileged place to host official receptions and gala events. A unique location in the world, combining perfectly restored historic locations, such as the Monumental Area, the Teatrino Lorenese and the Polveriera, with modern pavilions such as the Spadolini Pavilion (25,620 sq m on three levels) and the Cavaniglia Pavilion, opened in 1996, offering a wonderful visual impact of the 16th-century walls on one side of the building.

The conservative restoration of the whole area was carried out according to the space destination and to the requirements of the event organisers, exhibitors and visitors. Access to pavilions and to interior spaces is made possible through three driveway and pedestrian gates (Porta S. Maria Novella, Porta Faenza and Porta Mugnone) and two pedestrian entrances (Porta alle Carra and Porta Soccorso alla Campagna).

Access for persons with reduced mobility is guaranteed in all the public areas of the venues.
