Useful information


This palace was built by Giorgio Vasari in 1607 on two old buildings incorporating the remains of the Tower, known as the Famous one (della Fame): in this tower, so the story goes, the count Ugolino della Gherardesca, commander of the Pisa fleet, was condemned, after a defeat attributed to his treason, to die of hunger... with his children, treachery being, as is well known, a hereditary trait. Hence the name of palazzo della Gherardesca that is sometimes given to the palace.
