This complex and prestigious environment combines charming and perfectly restored historic places (such as the Quartieri Monumentali - the Monumental Area - or the Polveriera) with modern pavilions, specifically built to increase the space availability, such as the Spadolini Pavilion, built on three floors (opened in 1977) and the more recently built Cavaniglia Pavilion (opened in 1996).
DESCRIPTION OF THE EXHIBITING AREA
The Cavaniglia Pavilion is a modular and multifunctional venue.
Opened in 1997, it represents a more recent extension of the Florence exhibition center. It combines a contemporary design, aimed at satisfying the needs of the exhibition events which have to take place there, with a perfect integration in the historical and architectural context of the Fortezza da Basso, using a portion of its outer walls in a charming and fascinating mixture of different historical periods.
Thanks to its large and customisable areas, the pavilion can host many types of booths with different dimensions.
