The Uffizi in Florence has sent a group of Medici Portraits to the Palazzo dei Vicari in Mugello for a special exhibition which opened last week.

According to the gallery's website:

Lands of the Uffizi brings the Medici family portraits to the noble halls of Scarperia’s Palazzo dei Vicari to evoke the lengthy and widespread presence of the Medici in the country and towns of the Mugello, the family’s legendary homeland. From 19 May to 5 November the Museo dei Ferri Taglienti in Scarperia and San Piero will be hosting "The Medici: Mugello Folk. Family portraits from the Gallerie degli Uffizi", an exhibition devised and produced by the Fondazione CR Firenze and the Gallerie degli Uffizi in the context of their respective Piccoli Grandi Musei and Uffizi Diffusi schemes.

The portraits of the Dukes and their consorts in this exhibition are by leading Florentine artists who populated the art scene in the city in the 1530s and ‘40s, following in the footsteps of such great early 16th century masters as Fra Bartolomeo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Andrea del Sarto.

The display will run until 5th November 2024.
