The first section of the Gallery was created in 1581 by Francesco I de’ Medici on the last floor of the building, intended to house the Magistrature (the administrative and judicial offices) of the Florentine State. It included the works collected by the Medici in 15th and 16th C., originally located in the “Tribuna” and adjoining rooms. Under the rule of the Lorraine family the works were more rationally arranged, new collections were added, older ones were moved and became the core of other important Florentine museums (arms, scientific instruments, archaeological pieces, ancient and Renaissance bronzes). After the suppression of churches and monasteries in 18th and 19th C., many important religious works were moved to the Uffizi. In the early 20th C. some significant paintings were acquired in order to fill in the gaps of the museum, so that the Uffizi became the “National Italian Gallery”.
