Leonardo Da Vici, Botticelli, Raffaello and Michelangelo in Uffizi
Uffizzi is one of the oldest and finest gallerys in the wold. It was commisioned to Giorgio Vasari by Cosimo I de Mediciin 1560. He wanted to reunitethe 13 city magistracies in a single location. The project consisted in two long Doric-style porticos that went from Palazzo Vecchio to the Loggia della Signoria. The work was completed in 1580 by A. Parigi and B. Buontalenti. Just a few years later, in 1581, Francesco I de' Medici, Cosimo's son and the new Grand Duke of Tuscany by then, set up a private Gallery with statues and other precious objects on the top floor of the east wing of the Uffizi, all part of the private family collection of art objects. The Gallery opened to the public in 1769 by Grand Duke Peter Leopold.
The museum is spread out over 3 floors. On the second floor you'll find the main and some of the most interesting halls in the museum. The 45 halls on this floor display works of art from the 13th to the 18th centuries. My tour is focused on the renaissance painting of Medici colection.
