Florence Chamber of Commerce

Camera di Commercio di Firenze | Florence Chamber of Commerce

On 29 March 2018, The Permanent Court of Arbitration and the Florence Chamber of Commerce concluded a cooperation agreement to enable the PCA to make use of the Chamber’s facilities in Florence for arbitration hearings. The Agreement was signed by the Secretary-General of the PCA, Hugo Siblesz, and the President of the Florence Chamber of Commerce, Leonardo Bassilichi.

Located between Piazza dei Giudici, Lungarno Diaz, and Piazza Mentana, the Florence Chamber of Commerce headquarters is a 9,000-sqm property. It was home to the first Chamber of Commerce of Italy, established on 1 February 1770 by Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo. The building is located where the Wool Guild’s pullery stood in the Middle Ages.

The premises are recently refurbished with state-of-the-art technology, and offer 20 customizable suites available for mediation meetings, a 45-seat workshop room, a 282-seat auditorium, the impressive main hall that once housed the Florence Stock Exchange, and a rooftop terrace with a breathtaking view of the city.
