The Niobe Room in the Uffizi

Video in Italian | The Ovidian myth of the Niobids and the ancient group of statues

The group of twelve ancient sculptures gives the name to the large room on the second floor of the Uffizi: the Niobe Room, embellished with beautiful golden stuccos and a coffered ceiling covered with gold leaves.
One of the most fascinating rooms in the Gallery, the room houses the sculptural group representing the myth of Niobe narrated by Latin poet Ovid in his "Metamorphoses".
