History of Uffizi Gallery in XVII Century

In the six hundreds the collections were vastly expanded: the so-called inheritance of d'Urbino, was then named Vittoria della Rovere, the completion of the second and third floor ceilings in the corridors; the creation of the porcelain room and then that of the self-portraits hall. After that they began to build the halls for the design collections of cardinale Leopoldo, first actual impressions and design studio centre and still today one of the galleries with the largest collections worldwide. Furthermore the Gallery would increase its handmade art works in hard stone and archaeological pieces
