New Michelangelo Room 35 Reopens
The official presentation of the newly reopened Room 35 at the Uffizi Gallery, now called the Michelangelo Room, took place this past Monday January 28 2013.
After several months of being closed, the public can once again enjoy all of its riches. Located on the second floor of the museum, the room’s new colorful background better exhibits some of the most beautiful works of art within the Gallery, including the Tondo Doni by Michelangelo that used to be in Room 25.
At the center of the room the public can also finally once again view the majestic Sleeping Ariadne, a statue that has returned to the museum after 2 centuries of being in other galleries across the world.
