Bio Statement

Many of his sculptures now reside in the Museum. The Museum is likewise house to sculptures by Andrea Pisano (1290-1349) and many others. The Uffizi Gallery houses numerous valuable paintings, most significantly lots of from the collection of the de Medici household, who willed their massive art collection to Florence in 1737. When the Germans were bombing the bridges into Florence throughout World War II, the Ponte Vecchio was spared, apparently due to the fact that Hitler purchased them to avoid that bridge because it was so attractive. Florence is still a center of art and culture, simply as it has been for numerous centuries.
