Special opening of the Vasari Corridor September 14, 2013

The Vasari Corridor will open its doors to Italian tourists September 14, 2013. On September 14, you will have the opportunity to visit the Vasari Corridor with the professionalism of our guides, allowing you to understand the true value and the significance it has represented and still represents for the whole city of Florence.

Inside there is a vast collection of portraits of artists from around the world who, after staying in Florence and being amazed by the beauty of the Renaissance, decided to give the city and citizens of a artpiece that portrayed their best expression.

The Vasari Corridor was built in just five months in 1565 by Giorgio Vasari for the Grand Duke Cosimo I de ‘Medici. Designed to ensure the safe passage of the Medici family, away from the dangers of the city, from thel Pitti Palace , their residence, to Palazzo Vecchio, the seat of power and decisions of the Medici, the Palazzo Vecchio is in fact still the seat of the municipality of Florence.

Over the years the Vasari Corridor has held various” public offices” that allowed it to become a prestigious symbol of Florence in the World. Initially used as a private passage, it was later converted into a museum, among its guests was Adolf Hitler who, along with Benito Mussolini, visited it in 1938 during his visit to Italy. During the Second World War it was used by the partisans as the only connection between the two parts of Florence divided because of the Nazi destruction of all the bridges except the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. Today the Vasari Corridor is part of the Uffizi Gallery and maintains in display the extensive collection of self-portraits and some portraits of the seventeenth and the eighteenth century.
