Inside the Uffizi

1 x 56 HD
Broadcaster:  SWR

How can the oldest and most esteemed art institution in the world adapt to the demands of 21st century visitors while keeping its history intact? We go on a private tour of the Uffizi Gallery to go behind-the-scenes of its modernisation process and get up close and personal with some of its most famous works – from Michelanglo to Botticelli, Caravaggio and Da Vinci – and reveal the secrets behind a museum that attracts millions of visitors each year.

 

With dramatic re-enactments tracing its foundations back to the Medici family, and exclusive interviews with the museum's current director, Eike Schmidt, the film illustrates the delicate balance between history and accessibility that is at the heart of Schmidt’s quest to bring the museum and its famed collection into the modern age.
