I'll merge the articles, and put a redirect from Palazzo della Signoria to this article.

I noticed you already moved most of is, so i decided to complete the merge. Feel free to change anything if i've accidentally changed the content! -- The Minister of War(Peace) 10:36, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
Mega is not a valid source of information.. it is full of mistakes.. The inscription by savonarola is confirmed in several books.. I will write some soon, then we'll decide which version to keep... --Sailko 16:34, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Gothic?[edit]

The article now states the Palazzo is Gothic architecture. I can not see a single Gothic feature. -- Petri Krohn 03:42, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Updated photo of Salone dei Cinquecento[edit]

I've put together an HDR photo of Salone dei Cinquecento which I'd like to use to replace the current photo. It's basically the same picture, just quite a bit more vivid: (image) It's my first WP suggestion, so I'm a bit hesitant to just replace what's already there. Listrophy 18:37, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

This is indeed a much better picture. You've uploaded it to Flickr without mentioning the copyright license. I would suggest you add {{cc-by-2.5}} . Then you can upload this picture to Commons:Palazzo Vecchio (Firenze), using the same license. Once the image is on the Commons, you can insert it into this article. JoJan 13:44, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the advice, JoJan. The picture is updated, and all is right with the world. Listrophy 18:04, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Rhinoceros ?[edit]

The following text was added recently :

"Historians suspect that the stuffed rhinoceros of Pope Leo X was shipped back to Florence and stored in the Medici collection in the Arsenale. If it did make an extended stay there it would have been moved by 1175 when the collections were dispersed. No traces of the animal have been found. <ref>Bedini, Silvio ''The Pope's Elephant'' (1997) 136.</ref>"

If one checks the articles Dürer's Rhinoceros and Belém Tower, it is clearly stated that the Portuguese king Manuel I sent the first living example, seen in Europe since Roman times, to Pope Leo X in 1515. However it went down in a shipwreck off the coast of Italy.

Then how could it have been stuffed and stored in Florence ? And have been moved by 1175 ? (time travel ?).

The deleted paragraph uses the words "suspect", "if", "it would", "no traces", in other words this looks like speculation and not fact. Therefore I have removed this paragraph until someone comes up with something more tangible. JoJan 08:36, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Hall of the 500[edit]

Why is there not a single English Language mention of the most important place of the subject of this article? Most people, not being able to speak Italian, will not understand "CINQUECENTO" --184.161.146.190 (talk) 19:05, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
