I florentini al castello: il progetto di Bernardo Buontalenti e Giovanni Gargiolli per la nuova galleria di Rodolfo II

Building activity at Prague Castle intensified after 1585, when the imperial court moved to Prague. In that year, the architect Giovanni Gargiolli entered the service of Rudolf II. The article focuses on his designs for the renovation of the ruling seat and also treats the equally important work of another Florentine architect, Bernardo Buontalenti. The new interpretation is based first and foremost on two letters from 1587 deposited at the Archivio di Stato di Firenze, Mediceo del Principato.
