Tribuna of the Uffizi by Johann Zoffany. Place cursor over artworks or persons to identify them.

The Tribuna of the Uffizi is an octagonal room in the Uffizi gallery, Florence, Italy. Designed by Bernardo Buontalenti for Francesco I de' Medici in the late 1580s, the most important antiquities and High Renaissance and Bolognese paintings from the Medici collection were and still are displayed here. In 1737 the Grand Duchess Anna Maria Luisa de' Medici ceded the collection to the Tuscan government, and by the 1770s the Uffizi (and in particular the Tribuna) was the hub for Grand Tourists visiting Florence.

Johann Zoffany's famous painting of it (commissioned by Queen Charlotte of the United Kingdom in 1772) portrays the north-east section, but varies the arrangement and brings in works not normally displayed in the Tribuna (e.g., Raphael’s Madonna della Sedia). Admiring the works of art are connoisseurs, diplomats and visitors to Florence, all identifiable.
