On a historical roof, in front of Palazzo Vecchio, taste Florence in all its flavours

Unforgettable mid-spring evenings on the terrace of Loggia dei Lanzi, Florence, sipping a glass of Tuscan wine to celebrate  the sun setting on  Florence,  after a  guided tour in the area of the new Uffizi.

The eye runs onto the icons of the celebrated landscape  and the foot  walks over the Perseus by Benvenuto Cellini or the Rape of the Sabine Women by Jean de Boulogne,  masterworks of  renaissance and  mannerism respectively. You can really imagine to go back to the  Medicis’ times  when the Grandukes used to  spend,  in a unique environment,  pleasant evenings with such breathtaking views. That is the project of  Cocktails for Art, an initiative by the Polo Museale Fiorentino, Firenze Musei,  ATAF and NTV which propose  an appetizer buffet on top of the Loggia dei Lanzi. It is going to kick off from April 26th 2012. A date for visitors and Florentines every Thursday from 19,30  up to 21,30. It schedules a guided tour to the recently opened part of the New Uffizi, the so-called eight blue rooms, devoted to Spanish, French, Flemish and Dutch paintings. As testimonial  of the weekly event a masterwork on show here, the Countess of Chinchon, painted by Goya in the years between  1797 and  1801. The staff of the State Museum of Florence are going to  accompany groups of 25 people, departing every half hour, at the price of 10 €, from the western wing of the Uffizi, just behind the Loggia dei Lanzi.

Reservation at the call center Ataf is advisable.
