Guided Visits to Painted Wood Exhibit
Have you seen that the Uffizi is currently hosting the exhibition dedicated to painted wooden sculpture of the 15th century, called “He Made Sculpture out of Wood and Colored It”? Make sure you stop by during your visit, because it is really quite breathtaking!
In addition to a simple stop, if you’re at the museum on Thursdays, you could join in on a guided visit to the exhibit. Every Thursday, in fact, the museum is offering 2 guided visits, at 2pm and 4:30pm. The visits are free with paid admission.
All you need to show up at the entrance to the exhibit (at Hall 83 on the first floor) about 10 minutes before. Groups of up to 15 people will then be led into the exhibit together. You can book your spot by calling 055.238.8693 between Tuesday and Saturday, 2:30-4:30pm.
If you miss the guided visits, don’t worry but don’t skip the exhibit! It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some works up close before they head back to churches and altars.
