The Vasarian Corridor was commissioned on 1565 by Cosimo I De' Medici, to connect Palazzo della Signoria and the Medici's private residency, Palazzo Pitti, to the architect Vasari. The Corridor function was to allow the Medici Family to move freely and safely from the political buildings to their residence avoiding to walk among crowds in the streets, and been attacked by enemies.
