Alessandra did a wonderful job covering the history of the Uffizi, both as a building and as a museum. She also did a fascinating job on the art work, and added greatly to my understanding, even though I have gone on several tours in the Uffizi in years past. There were some technical problems with internet connection early on.
Dr. Alessandra Becucci does it again. Her lecture on the history of the Uffizi building and it's most treasured works within is another outstanding lecture. I visited the Ufizzi about five years ago and stood in front of each of these masterpieces. But Dr. Bucucci's knowledge of the history behind the the painters, and/or the models is fascinating! Also the part I really like about her research and her visuals is the way she unfolded how the skills of the various artists unfolded over time and evolved to the great level of skill, perspective, and details over time. The close ups she uses to make these points are things you can't really get when you stand behind the ropes at the gallery itself. This lecture brought back the memories of my actual visit and took my understanding off these paintings to the next level. Grazie!
Alessandra is a fabulous presenter. Even though I've been to the Uffizi multiple times, I still got so much out of the talk. Sorry we had the technical difficulties.
I so enjoyed seeing the Uffizi Galleries again. Dr. Becucci greatly enhanced my knowledge of these permanent works.
