The Palazzo Magnani Feroni is a building in Florence, central Italy, one of the oldest buildings in the San Frediano neighbourhood of the city. It is currently serving as a hotel.
Typical of Renaissance palaces of the time, it is decorated and adorned with statues, paintings and frescoes dating from the 16th century.
During the French occupation of Italy in the Napoleonic Wars the Feroni marquises held formal parties and grand balls to celebrate official visits of a sovereign or during an annual event, such as the Grand-Duchess's birthday.
The entrance-way dates from the 17th century and leads to the iron gate decorated with the coat-of-arms of the Feroni family: an armour-clad arm, holding a sword and a golden lily.
