The palace is the headquarters of the Pisa Foundation, which has transformed it into the main exhibition center of the city. It is the venue of the most important cultural events and temporary exhibitions. The color of the facade dates back to the 19th century, probably due to the taste of guests of St. Petersburg who stayed there.
The palace houses the permanent collection of the Pisa Foundation that has purchased works of art of some importance, mainly from the territory of Pisa. The permanent exhibition of works of art is divided into three sections: the art collections of the Pisa Foundation, located on the second floor; the aristocratic residence and the Simoneschi Collection on the second floor. The Fondamenta, a new exhibition section dedicated to archaeology and medieval history, are on the basement floor.
The original nucleus of the collection has been enriched with works by important authors such as Nino Pisano, Orazio and Artemisia Gentileschi, Orazio Riminaldi, Tribolo.
In addition to individual works, the Foundation has purchased entire collections such as that of Ottavio Simoneschi, or the rich photographic archive of Luciano Frassi, which documents the life of the city in the second half of the 20th century.
