"Magnificent" video exhibit at Palazzo Vecchio in Florence

There is a video exhibit "Magnificent" at Palazzo Vecchio in Florence from May 1 until October 31, 2015. http://www.magnificentfirenze.it/en/. Has anyone been to this exhibit?

I can't find reviews on this special exhibit perhaps because the combination of search terms "Maganificent" and "Palazzo Vecchio" returns general descriptions of Palazzo Vecchio not related to this special exhibit. It is not clear if this is just a walk-in-any-time or a reservations essential visit.

Do google searches with the word "mostra" in it, and "2015"

If you play around with the search string "digital video palazzo vecchio Florence 2015" you can come up with more English language info

When we were in Firenze last month they closed early that day for some reason so we were unable to partake, but it sounds like fun. Anyway, it's inexpensive and of short duration, so what the heck...do report back!

I just saw this exhibit. It was a all around you video show of the history of Florence. There is no need for reservation. Hardly any tourist noticed this existed. This took place in a sala between Palazzo Vecchio's main entrance and Piazza della Signoria. The show in English every :30, lasts 20 min. Ticket purchased at Palazzo's main ticket window. There were only 6 people watching the show! The Italian version is narrated by Andrea Bocelli. This exhibit makes more sense for those just arriving in Florence by a Freccia train. The web site says 8Eu normal, 5EU with Freccia train ticket, but I only paid 2EU with a Freccia ticket. What it offered above all was a moment of peace from massive tour groups crisscrossing the Piazza outside.
