News from Italy that the Uffizi in Florence have restored Pietro Lorenzetti's (Siena 1280-1348) Santa Umiltà polyptych. The polyptych, which is composed of 22 elements, has taken over four years to conserve. In line with the gallery's Diffusi project, the large work has been sent off for an exhibition at the Pinacoteca Comunale di Faenza where it will be on display until March next year.

Readers will also notice that the museum has taken the opportunity to give the multipaneled work the contemporary 'Italian' framing treatment. Click here to see the Uffizi's washing machine setting for Michelangelo's Doni Tondo.
