A Guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery in English reveals to our eyes a casket of works arranged chronologically as in a great book on the history of art. The great artists, from Cimabue to Caravaggio , gave breath and body to men and women through their sensitivity and their scientific studies.
The Uffizi Museum , built as offices of the magistrates of Duke Cosimo I dei Medici by his trusted artist Giorgio Vasari, has become a Gallery since 1769 at the behest of Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo Asburgo Lorena .
The journey begins with the three great Majesties of Cimabue , Duccio da Buoninsegna and Giotto, who mark a change in the figurative language , in particular the brilliant personality of Giotto di Bondone opens the first great revolution through the representation of plastic bodies animated by very human feelings and deep.
The guided tour of the Uffizi in Italian continues with the still polite renaissance language of Gentile da Fabriano and then reaches the rich and elegant Antonio and Piero del Pollaiolo and Alessandro Filipepi , to the best known as Sandro Botticelli . The linear and perspective light of Piero della Francesca, together with Masaccio and Paolo Uccello , enrich the look on the Renaissance.
A Guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery in English sees another deep revolt with the red of the walls of the hall dedicated to Michelangelo. At the center of the hall the great Cleopatra , or Arianna , marks the influence of Hellenistic art in the heart of great masters such as Buonarroti , whose Tondi Doni is reflected in the monumental female figure .
After a stop in the Uffizi terrace, admiring the mighty wall of what was the Palagio dei Priori (now Palazzo Vecchio), the Filippo Brunelleschi dome , Giotto’s bell tower and other Florentine monuments, the guided tour of the Uffizi continues through the Cinquecento : Andrea del Sarto , Rosso Fiorentino , Pontormo and Bronzino , official painter of the Court of Cosimo I dei Medici. The portrait of the Grand Duke’s wife, the Grand Duchess Leonora Alvarez de Toledo (Eleonora of Toledo), becomes the flag of the grand duchy of Tuscany, of its excellent textile and goldsmith’s production.While the tough Cosimo, in his sparkling armor, looks proud.
The visit to the Uffizi Gallery continues with Leonardo Da Vinci , the youthful Annunciation together with the incomplete Adoration of the Magi , recently and magnificently restored by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure of Florence.
Caravaggio , Artemisia Gentileschi and the Flemish Gherardo delle Notti conclude the visit by accompanying us in the seventeenth century.
