The Uffizi Gallery

The Uffizi Gallery

The halls of the Uffizi Gallery were born as offices for the prosecutors, judges, engineers and merchants of Florence. The gallery occupies the entire first and second floors of the majestic building. It was constructed between 1560 and 1580 on a design by Giorgio Vasari and by the request of the Grand Duke Francesco I. They were turned into a private gallery for the pleasure of the ruling family of Florence, the Medicis, and their guests.

In addition to paintings, statues, jewelery and scientific instruments, was exposed on the inside, also a large collection of weapons, this made the Uffizi Gallery one of the most interesting galleries in the world. In 1865, the Uffizi Gallery became a museum and today consists of 50 rooms housing paintings from the 13th to the 18th century. Most famously: the “Madonna on the throne” by Giotto, the “Battle of San Romano” by Paolo Uccello, Piero della Francesca’s diptych “Federico da Montefeltro,” “The Birth of Venus” by Botticelli, plus 3 works of Leonardo da Vinci, one of Michelangelo, some of Raphael and several of Titian and Caravaggio. All the paintings are arranged chronologically, so that you can fully appreciate all the evolutions of art through the centuries.
