A true open-air museum, a natural symbiosis between art, history and expressive forms of architecture and urban development. Tuscany has been a real source of inspiration for thousands of artists and writers and has given birth to prominent personalities in history. One need only think of poets like Danti Alighieri, Francesco Petrarca and Giovanni Boccaccio, painters like Piero della Francesca and Michelangelo, musicians like Giacomo Puccini, scientists like Galileo Galilei and Leonardo da Vinci.
The culture of Tuscany spread out from Florence all over Europe, fascinating visitors, pilgrims and nobles.
In Tuscany, the Renaissance generated art and engineering and architectural development, especially in Florence, where art shops, artisans and new neighbourhoods were born. Aristocratic philanthropy fostered the development of the city and the construction of religious buildings, gardens and fine monuments. Tuscany can boast prominent figures the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. Born in the village of Vinci, Leonardo is considered the finest and most talented mind of his century. His artistic apprenticeship took place in one of Florence’s most prestigious workshops, that of Andrea Verrocchio.
Today these masterpieces can be admired in museums and galleries scattered throughout the art cities. A place not to miss is the worldwide renowned Uffizi Gallery, known for its extraordinary collections of sculptures and paintings from the Middle Ages to the modern age. However, the Uffizi Gallery is not the only museum worth visiting.
