The Uffizi Gallery was built from 1560 by Vasari, commissioned by Cosimo I de’ Medici, for the "Uffici della Magistratura". The first nucleus of the museum began at the time of Francesco I (about 1584). In 1737 Anna Maria Luisa, the last member of the Medici, left the collections to the dukes of Lorraine, provided they remained in Florence. The Galleria, one of the most important museums in the world, is home to masterpieces by artists such as Cimabue, Giotto, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Botticelli.
