The Uffizi Gallery (Galleria degli Uffizi in Italian) which translates as Gallery Office, is a palace in Florence, which contains one of the oldest and most famous art collections in the world. The construction of the Uffizi Palace was begun in 1560 by Giorgio Vasari, the orders of Cosimo I de 'Medici. His original purpose was to house the offices of the Florentine magistrates, once outgrew the Palazzo Vecchio. This function derives its name "Uffizi Gallery". The construction was finished in 1581. For years, parts of the palace were used to store parts of the magnificent art collection of the Medici family. Upon termination of the Medici dynasty in the eighteenth century, works of art were in danger of being transferred to Vienna, as the Duchy of Florence became Austrian domination. Luckily for the Florentines, the last Duchess Maria Anna had decreed the permanent collection in Florence at donárselas in his will to the people of Florence, being the embryo of one of the first modern museums in the world. The gallery was open to visitors who requested it during the sixteenth century and in 1765 officially opened to the public as a museum.
