The Galleria degli Uffizi is a world-famous art museum in Firenze, Italy. It was built from 1559 on as an office (therefore the name) for the public administration. Since 1580 it contains art and since then it was open to the public. It contains mainly works in Italian renaissance style.
The most famous artwork exhibited here is “The Birth of Venus” by Sandro Botticelli (“La nascita di Venere”). But it also contains works from Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio and Michelango – especially the original David.
