The Uffizi Gallery (1560-1580) was originally meant to be an Ufficio (office) for magistrates as well as judges, technicians and merchants of Florence. The top floor was turned into a private gallery for the pleasure of the ruling family of Florence, the Medici, and their guests. Paintings, statues, jewelry, scientific instruments, and even weapons were displayed here, which made it one of the most interesting and precious collections in the whole world.
