Palazzo Pitti. Sala di Apollo

Pitti Palace. Hall of Apollo
In Medici times, the Room of Apollo was an antechamber reserved for ordinary noblemen waiting to be received by the Grand Duke. The room's frescoes were once again entrusted by Grand Duke Ferdinando II to Pietro da Cortona in 1647. In this room and in the next, the Room of Venus, you will admire several portraits by Titian, considered masterpieces for the strong personality and introspection that come out from the subjects portrayed. In particular, note Titian's “St. Mary Magdalene” and the “Portrait of Pietro Aretino”. Another work to admire is the masterpiece by Rosso Fiorentino, the Madonna with Saints (1522), from the Church of Santo Spirito.
