Situated in Florence, Italy, the Uffizi Gallery is one of the most important museums in the world and in 2013 was named, “World’s Greatest Gallery” by The Times of London. It houses an unsurpassed collection of Renaissance art, including Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” and Leonardo da Vinci’s “Annunciation.” Friends of the Uffizi Gallery work in collaboration with their sister organization in Italy, Amici degli Uffizi, to raise awareness of the gallery and to provide resources for acquisition, restoration and education. To date, they’ve raised funds to restore more than 30 priceless works of art, including Baccio Bandinelli’s “Laocoön and His Sons.”
