Legend says that Santa Croce was founded by St Francis himself. The current church was probably begun in 1294, possibly by Arnolfo di Cambio, and paid for by some of the city's wealthiest families. It was consecrated in 1442 by Pope Eugene IV. In 1560, the choir screen was removed and the interior rebuilt by Giorgio Vasari, who damaged the church's decoration in the process. The neo-Gothic facade, by Nicolo Matas, only dates from 1857-1863. The campanile was built in 1842. In the Primo Chiostro, the main cloister, is the Cappella dei Pazzi, built as the chapter house by Filippo Brunelleschi between 1442 and 1446 and finally completed in the 1470s. Brunelleschi also built the inner cloister, completed in 1453

Palazzo Vecchio or Palazzo della Signoria was projected by Arnolfo di Cambio around 1299 as residence of the Priori delle Arti, the palace was completed in 1322. The tower of Palazzo Vecchio, 94 metres high, was built by Arnolfo di Cambio in 1299, along with the Palazzo itself. It is probably supported by an even more antique tower called torre de’ Foraboschi. Palazzo Vecchio was the residence of the Signoria during 15th century and later was restructurated by Vasari when, in 1540, Cosimo I de' Medici moved into the palace with his family.

In 1865, when Florence was the capital of the kingdom of Italy it became the seat of United Italy's government from 1865-71, and housed the Chamber of Deputies (the Senate sat next door in the Uffizi). It was to return to its original function as the seat of the City Council in 1872.
