Synopsis

Florence’s Uffizi Gallery, on which construction began in 1560, houses such masterpieces as Botticelli's The Birth of Venus, as well as works by Bronzino, Caravaggio, Titian, and Rubens. Connected to the Pitti Palace by a corridor designed by Vasari that crosses the Arno River, the Uffizi Gallery is a one-of-a-kind museum. This gorgeous oversize book showcases the extraordinary collection, and Alexandra Bonfante-Warren provides fascinating context by relating the story of the museum’s construction and complex history.
