Guided tour by Giorgio Vasari

In 1555 Giorgio Vasari, a painter, architect and writer from Arezzo, author of “Lives of the most excellent painters, writers and architects”, becomes the director of the building site of Palazzo Vecchio and carries out a huge task to turn the building into a luxurious Renaissance palace. While talking with the public, Giorgio Vasari shows the cultural political lines of the Duke Cosimo, the one and only commissioner of the renovations, and the expertise of the Fabbrica Medicea to recreate, in record time, the new ducal residence.
