That venue for? as historic as it is very prestigious, already in half? of the twentieth century begin? to be insufficient, given the large amount? of archival documentation which was paid to the Institute. Following the flood of 1966, the proposal to move to a more central location suitable, it appeared mature and was identified as suitable the area of Piazza Beccaria, at the eastern edge of the pi? ancient historical center. The initial project dates back to the early 70s and was carried out by the Italo Gamberini Studio in Florence. Work began in 1977 and the building was then inaugurated on 4 February 1989. Italo Gamberini, yes? tested with an urban structure that, due to its particular destination, had necessarily to have the characteristics of a closed container, but, at the same time, open to the needs of a highly qualified user. The problem was solved by adopting a trapezoidal volumetric solution: having established a longitudinal axis between Piazza Beccaria and Viale Duca degli Abruzzi, a long internal crossing road was planned leading from the west side to the main facade overlooking Piazza Beccaria. This long corridor, illuminated from above and used as an exhibition space, takes on the connotation of an ideal internal road connecting the building to the city. The palace ? been considered an example of contemporary architecture and as such? has been? by the competent Superintendency of Architectural Heritage. Currently the State Archive of Florence, preserves more? of 600 funds, for a total of over 80 Km of documents, from the VIII sec. in our days, of the pi? different typologies: correspondence, diplomas, illuminated codes, statutes, drawings, nautical and geographical maps which bear the historical memory of the political, social, cultural and artistic events of Florence and Tuscany and which make the Florence State Archive a point of reference for researchers all over the world.
