The Palazzo Vecchio was used for a famous scene in the movie Hannibal. Hannibal is a 2001 American crime thriller film directed by Ridley Scott, adapted from the novel of the same name by Thomas Harris. It is the sequel to the 1991 Academy Award-winning film The Silence of the Lambs in which Anthony Hopkins returns to his role as the iconic serial killer, Hannibal Lecter. Hannibal Lecter baits Chief Inspector Rinaldo Pazzi into an isolated room of the Palazzo Vecchio, ties him up, then disembowels and hangs him from the window of the Palazzo Vecchio.

Palazzo Vecchio was also a center of mapping in the 16th century. Cosimo I, Duke of Tuscany set up his great cosmographical project is the Guardaroba of the Palazzo Vecchio. He attracted friar Ingnazio Danti who would paint here 30 maps of the regions of the newly discovered world. Ignazio Danti would base his maps on the published maps of the Flemish cartographers Abraham Ortelius and Gerardus Mercator, and the Italian cartographer Giacomo Gastaldi. 

Ignazio Danti created also a large terrestrial globe, known as “the globe of the Guardaroba”. He also made a few brass scientific instruments which you can see in the Museo Di Storia Della Scienza nearby.

The famous painting The Battle of Marciano by Giorgio Vasari (also known as the Battle of Scannagallo) is exhibited in the Palazzo Vechio. The Battle of Marciano occurred in the countryside of Marciano della Chiana, near Arezzo, Tuscany, on August 2, 1554, during the Italian War of 1551. The battle marked the defeat of the Republic of Siena in its war against the Duchy of Florence, and resulted in Sienna losing its independence and being absorbed into the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.

The painting plays also an important role in the book Inferno of Dan Brown.

In 1588, Galileo gives two public lectures at the Accademia Fiorentina (Florentine Academy) about the shape, location, and dimensions of hell as described in Dante’s Inferno. The meetings of the Florentine Academy were made “public” by ducal privilege from 1560 onwards, and they were held in the Sala del Consiglio dei Duecento in Palazzo Vecchio.

The Palazzo Vecchio (Italian pronunciation: [paˈlattso ˈvɛkkjo] “Old Palace”) is the town hall of Florence, Italy. This massive, Romanesque, crenellated fortress-palace is among the most impressive town halls of Tuscany. Overlooking the Piazza della Signoria with its copy of Michelangelo’s David statue as well as the gallery of statues in the adjacent Loggia dei Lanzi, it is one of the most significant public places in Italy.
