A recently restored fifteenth century portrait of Dante has been unveiled at the Uffizi in Florence. The painting was originally one of nine famous figures painted in fresco by Andrea del Castagno on the walls of a villa outside Florence between 1447 and 1449. It will be included in the Uffizi's recently announced Uffizi Diffusi Project, which will see important works of art travelling to different parts of Tuscany.
