The Marquis Feroni purchased the palace in 1770, expanded it and decorated the ground floor and the first floor apartments. Thereafter it passed on to the Magnani family, that distinguished itself among the high-society of 1800' Florence, and was listed in the "Golden books of Florentine nobility" commissioned initially by Ferdinando I de' Medici.
Later on, the Palace was bought by the family of the current owner, and for a time it stood as one of the most important Art Galleries in Europe, the Galleria Salvadori.
A few years ago it was restructured to offer 12 elegant suites, each approx. 100 sq. m. decorated with period furniture and many fragments of original tapestries from the Salvadori collection, thanks to which today Palazzo Magnani Feroni is under the jurisdiction of the Italian Artistic Patrimony Protection Authority.
Upon entering Palazzo Magnani Feroni you will seemingly be transported back to the ancient splendour of Florentine life. The historical importance of the Palazzo can still be seen today in the big entrance door from the 1600', that gives way to a wrought iron gate decorated with the "arms" of the Feroni family - an armour encased arm holding a sword, and a golden lily.
