A Skeleton in the Vasari Corridor Robert Rauschenberg

A Skeleton in the Vasari Corridor Robert Rauschenberg

Perhaps not everyone knows that there is a skeleton in the Vasari Corridor.

Did you know that there is a secret passageway that passes above Florence, from Palazzo Vecchio, crossing over the Ponte Vecchio and arriving into the Boboli Gardens? If you look at the Ponte Vecchio from the outside you can see a row of round windows all along the top, that is the Vasari Corridor. Nowadays, the corridor houses the Uffizi collection of self-portraits that have been donated over the years by many artists.

Inside the Vasari Corridor you can find six radiographs of a human-sized human body. In fact, inside the Corridor Mediceo, along with the self-portraits of illustrious artists, this strange work immediately goes to the eye.

Of course this is not a real skeleton but a radiograph by the US painter Robert Rauschenberg.

Milton Ernest Rauschenberg, American painter and photographer, chose to represent himself in the simplest and most striking way.

The work is in fact a photograph of the intimate character of the author in this form to the public, generating discordant reactions and opinions.

The Vasari Corridor houses more than 500 autographs of painters who from 1700 to today have decided to leave in Florence a sign of their passage.
