Presentation to the press on February 18th of the operational planning involving one-and-a-half year works and amounting to 10 million euros.

The project for the upcoming rearrangement of the Vasari Corridor has been presented today 18th February, traditionally dedicated to remember the Electress Palatine, Anna Maria Luisa de' Medici who liberally donated the whole art treasury of her family to the city of Florence. Once the refurbishment works are over, the world-renowned Corridor designed by Vasari in the mid-1500s will be open to visitors again presumably from 2021. The collection of self-portraits that was traditionally on view there will be substituted with a selection of ancient statues and inscriptions, sixteenth-century frescoes originally decorating the external walls of the Corridor, and two memorials dedicated to the 1993 Via dei Georgofili Bombing and the 1944 WWII Bombing of Florence respectively.

"It will be a democratic accessible walk overlooking the heart of Florence - says Director Eike Schmidt - and about 500,000 people may visit it every year starting from 2021."
