UFFIZI GALLERY: THE BIGGEST NAMES OF THE COLLECTION

In 1560 Grand Duke Cosimo I de’Medici commissioned the architect Giorgio Vasari to design a magnificent building to house the administrative offices of Florence. Soon the Uffizi were chosen to house the Medici collections. In the 17th century it was already possible to visit the gallery with a special permit issued by the Grand Duke. With the Uffizi Gallery private tour, we will see all the famous works we studied at school and have always known by name. Adoration of the Magi by Gentile da Fabriano, Primavera by Botticelli, Doni Tondo by Michelangelo, Annunciation by Leonardo, Venus of Urbino by Titian, and many many more.

Make it come alive with the help of your private guide of Florence!

THE SERIE GIOVIANA AT UFFIZI GALLERY

If you say Uffizi Gallery, your mind goes automatically to the Venus by Botticelli, the Maestà by Giotto or the Tondo Doni by Michelangelo. Maybe, you don’t even notice the series of small portraits on display in the three corridors of the museum. This is the so-called Serie Gioviana. It’s a collection of portraits of illustrious men and women ever since: popes, kings, emperors and sultans, cardinals and noblemen, saints and ecclesiastics, scientists and literary men, artists and leaders of mercenaries. The collection was begun in 1552 on the will of the Grand Duke Cosimo I de’Medici, who sent the court painter Cristofano dell’Altissimo to Como to copy the portraits of the Universal Gallery of the Men of the Bishop Paolo Giovio, who was in possession of a remarkable portraits’ series, depicted using medals, coins and previous paintings as a model. At the beginning the collection was in Palazzo Vecchio, in the Globe Hall, later on, when the number of pictures got too big, it was moved to the Uffizi Gallery. Cristofano worked on it until 1589 and today the collection counts 488 portraits.
