    Name: Virtual Tour of the Uffizi Gallery
    Date: February 6, 2019
    Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    The Uffizi Gallery is arguably the best gallery for Italian Renaissance art and one of the greatest art treasure troves in the world. Built in 1584 as an office (uffizi) for the Medici family, the collection opened to the public in 1769 and is today one of the most frequented art galleries in the world.

    In a tour of this gallery, one can see the full evolution from Medieval to Renaissance art and the glory of the 15th century from Giotto to Titian. The largest hall houses well known works of Botticelli, such as the “Birth of Venus” and “Allegory of Spring.” The list of famous works housed in the Uffizi goes on and on.

    Lilia Caserta, who holds a Ph.D. in Art History from Kazan University in Russia, will serve as your guide. She has been using the Uffizi gallery as a classroom for study abroad with Ferris for over a decade. Her descriptions and stories will transport you from the snow and cold of our Michigan winter to sunny Florence, Italy. Join us for a tour of one of the greatest museums in the world
