Bio Statement

Numerous of his sculptures now live in the Museum. The Museum is also house to sculptures by Andrea Pisano (1290-1349) and many others. The Uffizi Gallery houses numerous important paintings, most significantly many from the collection of the de Medici household, who willed their enormous art collection to Florence in 1737. When the Germans were battle the bridges into Florence during World War II, the Ponte Vecchio was spared, presumably since Hitler purchased them to avoid that bridge since it was so attractive. Florence is still a center of art and culture, just as it has actually been for numerous centuries.
