Geographic Map Room – Uffizi Gallery

The Geographic Map Room, next to the Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci rooms, was established by Francesco I and was one of the first rooms in the Uffizi. It contains two large, meticulously-detailed frescoes of Tuscany painted in the late 1500s and its ceiling consists of several panels depicting mythological scenes and other themes, painted by Zocchi. This room has been closed to the public for decades and would be reopened after restoration.
