The works of art survived the battle against time, witnessing the brilliance of Italian artists. Admirers of Caravaggio’s work are offered a long-lasting excitement, as the artist’s works are displayed on the first floor. Many visitors are interested in the Tribune of the Uffizi that is an octagonal room designed by Bernardo Buontalenti. Believe it or not, the best of all antiquities and High Renaissance paintings from the Medici history are still set in the room.
The construction of the Uffizi complex was started by Giorgio Vasari in 1560. It’s sole purpose was to accommodate each of the offices of the Florentin magistrates. Alfonso Parigi and Bernardo Buontalenti completed the construction in 1581.
The tourist attraction was once the home of the Medici.
Anna Maria Luisa, the last heiress of the family, had an important role in the negotiations between her family and the city of Florence. All the paintings were gifted to the city, and Uffizi became a museum in 1865.
In the period between the 13th and the 18th century, many of the rooms were used to exhibit artworks. Leonardo da Vinci, Michlangelo visited the Uffizi to enjoy its beauty, work and recreate.
Don't miss the opportunity to listen the story of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Giotto, Cimabue and of many other artists that made Italy one of the World's most culturally rich countries and left us a huge legacy.
