Take a walk with an art historian in the most visited museum in Italy. We will stroll through the masterpieces of Italian art and pay a visit to the great European masters collected by the Medici rulers of Florence. From Gothic cathedrals to Renaissance gardens, the works of art conserved in the Uffizi evoke the history of the city where Renaissance was born, while displaying the development of Western art through the works of its most representative masters.

Paintings by Giotto, Masaccio, Filippo Lippi, Leonardo, Raffaello, Michelangelo, Caravaggio and Artemisia Gentileschi, amongst others, are not only incredible testimonies to the greatness of these artists but visual documents of a world that gave birth to modernity. Come and see how paint, wood, canvas, and gold, shaped by the will of a patron and the skills of artistic genius can still vividly narrate to us incredible stories. Come and hear how a visual tale from the society, culture, and politics of the past can help us understand our present.

Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, this interactive seminar will explore the vast collection of the famed Uffizi Gallery. Led by art historian and native Florentine, Alessandra Becucci.

This conversation is the first in a two-part series. Each seminar can be joined independently and in any order.
