The Uffizi Gallery has recently launched a new room with the remarkable exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci, the engineer, scientific and Italian artist. Da Vinci, was one of the most famous men of the Italian Renaissance, whose first paintings (from the end of 1400s to the beginning of the 1500) are now showcased at this gallery. This exhibition is undoubtedly an unforgettable experience due to the relevance of his youth’s artwork and because of the huge restoration project that all paintings went through.
The Visitors will find at the room 35 of the Uffizi Gallery the Battesimo di Cristo (1475-78), which was developed for San Salvi’s church, l’Annunciazione developed for the Florentines’ chapel of San Bartolomeo, and finally l’Adorazione dei Magi developed for San Donato’s church. The walls of the room were painted in pale gray, to evoke the sacred buildings they once belonged to. The paintings are all displayed in special glass cabins that cancel the light’s reflection, allowing the viewer to admire them in a more genuine way.
