Palazzo dei Cartelloni

Palazzo dei Cartelloni, also known as Palazzo Viviani, is a Baroque-style palace in Florence, region of Tuscany, Italy.

This building displays many unusual architectural elements, the most evident being the unusually big epigraphs written in Latin. The owner of the building, the mathematician Vincenzo Viviani, had them applied on the main façade in 1693, in order to celebrate and glorify the life and many discoveries of his mentor, Galileo Galilei. It is after these inscriptions that the building takes its name.
