Let\'s discover the New Uffizi: the Blue rooms, dedicated to foreign painters from 16th to 18th century


Since December 2011, the so-called \"Blue Rooms\" opened at the Uffizi. They are ten rooms, smaller than other areas of the museum. \"Cabinets\", as the rooms dedicated to works of small size were called.

Until some time ago, these areas housed paper restoration laboratories. Today they are dedicated to Spanish, Flemish, Dutch and French painters, who lived between the sixteenth and eighteenth century.

From here the experiment of colorful rooms began. The new sets-up move away from the traditional Vasari two-color, which – according to the experts – risked losing its abstraction and being a flat bottom. The blue of these rooms not only has the simple effect of amaze visitors, but it was chosen in harmony with the works, with the artistic taste that gave rise to them.

In these spaces we meet Diego Velazquez, Francisco Goya, El Greek, Simon Vouet, Rembrandt, Jean Baptiste Simeon Chardin, Jean Etienne Liotard, the two Brueghel, Pieter Paul Rubens, Antoine van Dyck and other big names in the history of European art.

A small path in the Gallery, a series of masterpieces that give great emotions.
