Uffizi Gallery History

In 1560, Cosimo I de' Medici, the second Duke of Florence commissioned Giorgio Vasari, his favourite architect to design a building for administrative and judicial purposes , hence lending to the name “Uffizi” – Office. After his death in 1574, the new duke, Francis I, commissioned Bernardo Buontalenti to convert the top floor of the Uffizi into a repository for the art treasures amassed by the Medici family from the 13th century. Every member of the dynasty thus expanded the collection until the dynasty perished in 1743, after which the collection was left to the state of Tuscany. The Uffizi finally opened doors the public after repeated request in 1765 and exactly hundred years later in 1865, it was formally coined a museum.
