San Leo Wedding
The Palazzo Medici, with its Wedding Theatre, is a great venue for your civil ceremony and wedding reception. If you choose to celebrate your wedding outdoors in the Belvedere Garden and there is bad weather, the ceremony will be held in the Palazzo.
Celebrating your big day in the Wedding Theatre is an experience that starts even before the ceremony. As you make your way to the main square of the village, you will be facing the magnificent sandstone Palazzo, standing between the two most ancient churches of San Leo and overlooking the enchanting Marecchia valley.

A gem of a venue for your wedding
The 16th century Palazzo Medici was initiated by the Della Rovere and then continued by the Medici between 1517 and 1523 following the capture of the city by Florence. Its internal structure follows a Renaissance plan, organized around the ground floor’s reception rooms, while the façade, in addition to the elegant stone profiles of the windows, has a portal with the coat of arms with the famous lily of Florence and a date, 1521.

The Della Rovere family also contributed to the enlargement of the palace between the 15th and the late 18th century, and to the construction of the theatre hall with its characteristic vault cover. In 1631 the palace became property of the Church and in 1948 it was expanded through the construction of a higher floor. The last restorations were completed in 1994.
The Palazzo Medici now houses the Museum of Sacred Art, the Archives, the Library, the Tourist Office and important exhibitions of contemporary art.
The Theater of Weddings is equipped with a wonderful baby grand piano that can be played free of charge during the civil ceremony and the reception.
Alcune informazioni utili: il Teatro dei Matrimoni è dotato di uno splendido pianoforte a mezza coda che può essere suonato gratuitamente per accompagnare la cerimonia civile ed eventualmente anche per il ricevimento.
