Florence's Fortezza da Basso is a simply enormous fortress and was designed by architect Antonio da Sangallo the Young. The exterior wall of the Florence Fortezza da Basso still remains intact and the building is of great historical military importance.

Built in a striking pentagonal style, Florence's Fortezza da Basso is around 500 years old and soon became obsolete. Over the years the Fortezza da Basso has been used as a prison, arsenal, and army barracks. In 1978 a huge steel building, covered in aluminium, was constructed inside the wall of the Fortezza da Basso and has become an international exhibition centre, regularly hosting many popular events in Florence, including the large, international market show of jewellers and highly regarded Florence Pitti fashion shows.
