Raphael at Uffizi GallleryRaphael at the Uffizi - Portrait if Pope Leo X 

 Giovanni de’ Medici was elected Pope in 1513 under the name of Leo X. About five years later, the Pope commissioned his portrait to Raphael, who was living in Rome at the time, having been appointed Superintendent of Antiquities by the Pope himself. The majestic portrait shows the Medici pope seated at a table, magnifying lens in hand, before an illuminated manuscript. Behind him are two prelates, Cardinals Giulio de’ Medici and Luigi de’ Rossi. The work arrived in Florence in 1518, immediately after having been completed. Here it was praised by Vasari for its figures which are “not fake, but painted in full relief”. For the “rustling and shining” damask robe, for the “soft and realistic” fur linings, for the golden knob on the chair which reflects “the light from the windows, the Pope’s shoulders and the surrounding room”. Exemplary restoration has rivived the brilliance and intense chromatic variety of reds. Antonio Natali, who directed the restoration work, has noted that the two cardinals are by another hand, probably added by a valid collaborator of Raphael such as Sebastiano del Piombo or Giuliano Romano.


Accademia + Uffizi: the itinerary

Why is the David the most recognizable symbol of Florence and what did he represent in his time? How did the genius of Michelangelo confront the challenge of creating figures of compassion like the Pietà, or the famous Prisoners who still seem to struggle free from their marble blocks? After the Accademia you will have a short break for lunch and then at 3.15 pm you will meeet again your guide to visit the Uffizi Gallery which is one of the most famous museums in the world. Your knowledgeable guide will explain the works of the greatest artists from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance: Cimabue, Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, and many more.
At the end of the tour, you  do not have to rush away.  You can remain in the museum until closing time, so you have plenty of opportunity to make your list of personal favourites.
