The video below is about the backstage of this brilliant work

Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence
The Uffizi Gallery of Florence, first museum of Italy for its importance and number of visitors, is one of the most famous of the world. Built on the will of Cosimo I de’ Medici by Giorgio Vasari between 1560 and 1565, the building houses an impressive collection of artworks of inestimable value including eternal masterpieces of the XIVth century and the Renaissance age, made by masters such as Giotto, Piero della Francesca, Botticelli, Leonardo, Raffaello and Michelangelo. The core of the museum’s collection comes from the Medici heritage, enriched over the centuries by trading and donations. Among the art pieces stands out a fundamental group of religious works derived from the dissolution of monasteries and convents between the XVIIIth and XIXth centuries. The Gallery is divided into rooms respecting the chronological evolution of the school of art. With over 3400 artworks (paintings, sculptures, miniatures, tapestries and tables) showcased in the museum spaces, approximately 2400 are carefully preserved in the very modern museum depository.
