Description

The Uffizi Gallery is the oldest and most important museum in the world, we will relive the life of the Medici family, from the rise to power to the fall. We will discover together who was Botticelli's Venus, the works of Leonardo Da Vinci and Raphael. We will analyse the Gothic part and all the Florentine Renaissance, Michelangelo, Piero della Francesca. With the establishment of Duke Cosimo I de’ Medici in the ancient municipal seat of Palazzo Vecchio, the policy of exalting the monarchy within the city perimeter began. In 1560 the duke wanted to bring together the most important Florentine magistracies, called offices previously located in various locations, in a single building placed under his direct supervision. The offices of thirteen important Magistrates that regulated the administration of the Medici state were to be located in the new building and therefore the works were entrusted to Giorgio Vasari, his favorite architect. So why is it considered the oldest museum in the world…? In 1581 Francesco I, son of Cosimo, decided to close and use the loggia on the top floor as a personal gallery where to collect his magnificent collection of fifteenth-century paintings. For this reason, it is considered my oldest in the world, because Francesco I had more interest in the art of governing.
