Uffizi Diffusi

The Uffizi's director Eike Schmidt has released more details about his plans to spread out art and visitors from the centre of Florence. Uffizi Diffusi is a project that will attempt to spread out art amongst 60 exhibition spaces in Tuscany, including Livorno and two Medici villas on the outskirts of Florence. The decentralisation of art is an attempt to spread out visitors who visit this art and architectural jewel of a city, which during normal times already receives around 14 million visitors a year.

The director is quoted as saying:

We already have over 3,000 works of art on display in the Uffizi—that's enough.

As is often voiced on AHN, it would be wonderful if similar plans could be drawn up for the spreading out of art from stores in London to across the UK. We'll be the first to report on it if and when it happens!
