FLORENCE, ITALY – Director Eike Schmidt announced the comeback (public viewing by Easter 2017) of a Leonardo da Vinci 1481 oil on wood painting titled The Adoration of the Magi, which has been under restoration for years.
Another major change is that the Uffizi will do away with its one-size-fits-all tickets that force visitors to follow a mandatory path through the exhibits. For this reason, Sandro Botticelli, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti and Raphael Sanzio will have the entire second floor of the Uffizi Gallery in the new display of the Florentine museum during 2017.
Director Eike Schmidt told ANSA that the floor will have an independent entrance that will allow for viewers who have never been to the Uffizi before to view the great masters in a single visit. Schmidt is also putting an end to fashion shows, such as those by Pitti Uomo, in the museum.
