In a city known for its Renaissance architecture, the Florence-based Archea Associati continuously breaks ground with its cutting-edge projects. The firm recently designed a 5,400-square-foot art gallery inside a historic building on the Arno River. A suspended staircase connects the two-story space, which highlights contemporary works throughout its galleries and interior courtyard. +39.055.681.2697, www.tornabuoniarte.it
