The Uffizi Gallery reopens with new works and a new anti-row ticket office
Today's day begins with a beautiful image: Director Schmidt cutting the ribbon to inaugurate the new rooms inside the Uffizi.
In fact, the famous Florentine Gallery reopens with an amazing surprise: a display of 14 new rooms with no less than 129 new works inside! Undoubtedly, "a great contribution to the Gallery's offerings" as Annalisa Petrioli Tofani, the former director of the Museum, has declared.
The two thousand square meters just restored and recovered are dedicated to the painting of the sixteenth century Florentine, Emilian and Roman. In fact, the masterpieces of great masters such as Rosso Fiorentino and Bartolomeo Passerotti take their place in these new spaces.
In addition to this wonderful news, another novelty that surprises is given by the statement of E. Schmidt: "This reopening will surprise the public with a series of masterpieces never seen before and others well known, but shown in a way to rediscover them in their deeper meaning. This is because in the new spaces the works are not exhibited in a sequential manner, but dialogue with each other creating correspondences and visual guidelines in order to create an instinctive assimilation by the visitor.
A further novelty is revealed in the new access modes. In fact, the museum has been streamlined in order to contrast and fluidify the queues at the entrance.
