Tip of the Month

Each month we highlight a place of interest around the globe that we consider as unique as Borgo di Vagli. The tips are selected as they either show respect for the environment, nature, and architectural beauty or are deeply indigenous to their individual origin. This month we have chosen to highlight the Opening of eight new rooms at the Uffizi Museum in Florence, dedicated to Caravaggio, Artemisia Gentileschi, Rubens, Rembrandt and Van Dyck.

Masterpieces by Caravaggio and other great artists of the seventeenth century, from Artemisia Gentileschi to Rubens, from Rembrandt to Van Dyck: these are the works present in eight new rooms of the Uffizi, in Florence. In the new set-up, the walls were painted in crèmisi color, a red with a "non-flaming and exaggerated" tone, as the director Eike Schmidt explained, "often found in the fabrics and the walls represented in the paintings of those years, studied on a textile model of the time and made with natural pigments already used in the 1600s ».
