During the period of communal self-government in the 13th and 14th centuries, public buildings such as the Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo (now known as the Bargello) and the Palazzo dei Priori (today’s Palazzo Vecchio) set an important precedent for the palace builders of wealthy patrician families during the Renaissance. From her home in Tuscany, art historian Elaine Ruffolo traces how the built environment of Florence clearly reflects the historical development of the city at the dawn of the Renaissance.
