"We Must Make Haste! Marche 2016 - 2017: Treasures Rescued and Treasures still to Rescue"
Aula Magliabechiana - Uffizi
28 March - 30 July 2017 - Events
It hosts a series of masterpieces from the villages and towns of the Marche region, in particular from the provinces of Ascoli Piceno, Fermo and Macerata which were struck by the terrible earthquake that severely damaged or rendered inaccessible the churches, palazzi and museums in which the artworks were housed, often from the moment they were created.
It represents the Uffizi Galleries' tribute to the Marche in memory of the strong historical bond which the Uffizi maintains with the art collections of the region, and especially of Urbino, thanks to Vittoria della Rovere's legacy. The choice of works on display is also designed to provide the visitor with a succint overview of the development of art in the region from the Middle Ages to the 18th century.
The exhibition is promoted by the Gallerie degli Uffizi in partnership with the Soprintendenza Archeologia, Belle Arti e Paesaggio delle Marche and the Segretariato Regionale Mibact per le Marche and the deriving profits will be used to restore the monuments damaged in the earthquake.
Opening hours: from Tuesday to Sunday 08:15am-06:50pm, closed on Monday.
