Thanks to the discovery in the of a few swatches (Archivio di Stato in Florence) of French fabric intended for the furnishing of the Palazzo della Meridiana in the early 1830s, a new episode in the history of the Palazzo Pitti has unfolded. This research investigates both the manufacture and purchase of the fabric by "Maison Peyron Frères" in Lyon, completed in 1833, and the subsequent re-use of just one of those textiles to decorate the palazzina della Meridiana, where King Vittorio Emanuele II was going to live.
