The Mediceo Theater, inside the Uffizi Palace, is the work of Bernardo Buontalenti and at the time when Florence was capital of Italy it was the seat of the Senate. The building has the peculiar form of a horseshoe and sits over a loggia decorated with niches holding statues of valiant Florentine men who lived from the medieval and up to the 19th century. Today the Palace hosts the Uffizi Gallery, the most important art gallery in the world. Fundamental for Tuscan schools of art from 1200 and on, it holds works of Venetian, Roman, Flemish, German, Spanish and French painters. It presents masterpieces by Cimabue, Giotto, Gentile da Fabriano, Paolo Uccello, Piero della Francesca, Botticelli, Leonardo, Perugino, Giambellino, Correggio, Mantegna, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Tiziano, Tintoretto, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Goya and many more.
Important as well, are the classic and Hellenistic statues, which document the collection of the Medici's and the collection of tapestries, antique marbles and miniatures. On the ground floor in the rooms of the once church of Saint Peter Scheraggio, valuable frescoes can be found.
