Uffizi Diffusi open up to new horizons

Uffizi Diffusi open up to new horizons

The project continues enhancing various Tuscan villages, attracting the attention of international media

Presented last week, the exhibitions featuring two masterpieces by Raphael in Pescia and Hayez in Pontremoli, waiting for the venue in Casole d'Elsa, the project that brings the Galleries to the Tuscan territory is making people talk about the Uffizi even overseas. 

"The Uffizi is taking its art to the people" is how the British magazine The Economist celebrates the project for the diffusion of art carried out by the Galleries. "Its innovation may prove a model for other museums and galleries," continues the article accompanied by a video in which the image of the gallery and some details of Raphael's Madonna del Baldacchino alternate with evocative views of the Tuscan territory.

This is not the first prestigious recognition for Uffizi Diffusi by the international press. In 2021, the year the plan was launched, Time Magazine included the Tuscany of the Uffizi Diffusi among the 100 destinations in the world to visit in 2022; the project, now also at the centre of many academic studies and researches (among which that of the researcher of the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna of Pisa, Serena Giusti, mentioned in the same Economist article), has been covered by various other international publications, including the New York Times, Financial Times and CNN.
