The Uffizi Galleries
first brought together three extraordinary museum complexes in 2014. Together, these three structures contain the core of the collections of art, precious artisan-made objects, books, and plants belonging to the Medici, Habsburg-Lorraine and Savoy families. It is a stunning collection of treasures dating from Antiquity to the 20th century, and over the years, it has contributed to the fame of the Uffizi, Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. Since the Renaissance, these three museum sites have been connected to one another by an ingenious construction, the Vasari Corridor, and together they form one of the most important, most visited culture hubs in the world.

Historically, the integration of these three structures, joining the two banks of the Arno River since the 16th century, is part of peculiar visions of life, culture, power and customs of the ruling families who left their mark on and influenced the history of this area. Commissioned by Cosimo I de’ Medici, “Di qua d’Arno” palace was built in the mid-16th century to concentrate the full force of public power, creating an administrative headquarters  called the “Uffizi” [offices] for Florence’s Tribunals , Guilds, Corporations and Courts.

The great architect, Giorgio Vasari, was responsible for the design of a marvellous building, “on the river and almost in the air”. Over the course of two hundred years or so, this was destined to house the art collections of the Grand Dukes of Tuscany and in 1769, it was opened to the public as a museum – in the modern sense of the word – at the wishes of Grand Duke of Tuscany Peter Leopold.

The “Oltrarno” area, on the other hand, was where the sovereigns lived privately, a symbol of the lavishness of court: Pitti Palace and its splendid Boboli Gardens were the chosen residence of the Grand Dukes of the Medici family (who ruled from the 16th century until 1743) and their successors, the Habsburg-Lorraine family (from 1743 until 1859). Lastly, the kings of Italy, the Savoy family inhabited the Palace in the period in which Florence was the capital of Italy, before finally granting it to the State in 1911. To connect the two areas, built on the opposite sides of the river, the public one (closest to the beating heart of the city) and the private one  (separate and in the direction of the countryside) a raised path was created, the Vasari Corridor, for the use by the Grand Dukes but soon opened to the general public. It is a pathway from the Uffizi, passing over the river and the roofs of the city, offering unexpected panoramas and views, crossing over the palaces and civil and religious buildings to arrive at the Boboli Gardens and lastly, Pitti Palace.     

The art collections that today’s visitors to the Uffizi Galleries are able to enjoy in all three complexes represent a whole that few in the world can equal. In fact, they were put together by the ruling families who lived here, and who preserved these works to hand down their unevaluable  heritage destined to be enjoyed by the public. This is thanks to the enlightened, wise and generous action of the last of the Medici family, Anna Maria Luisa, who in her “Family Pact” of 1737 decided to leave the collections belonging to her illustrious family to the city of Florence so that, “no part could be removed from the Capital of the Grand Ducal State, of the Galleries, Paintings, Statues, Libraries, Jewels and other precious objects from the succession of His Serene Grand Duke, so that they remain here, as ornaments of the State, for the use of the Public and to attract the curiosity of Foreigners”. Thanks to this essential legacy and to the illuminated wisdom of the sovereigns who followed over the centuries, the city of Florence has been able to keep the core of the collections created by the Medici, Habsburg-Lorraine and Savoy dynasties almost intact (with brief intervals under the rule of the Bourbon-Parma and Elisa Baciocchi in the period of Napoleon). This heritage includes ancient and modern paintings and sculptures, precious furnishings, clothes and footwear, jewellery, items of everyday use, fabrics of all types, wall hangings and rugs, books, carriages, fountains, but also extraordinary examples of architecture from the 16th to the 19th centuries (such as the museum premises housing the collections, which are themselves marvellous examples of frescoed artistic treasure troves, just waiting to be admired), and even fabulous artificial grottoes, entirely decorated, and the ultra-rare collections of botanical species, acquired by the city’s rulers over the centuries and still expertly cultivated in the Boboli Gardens.
