Palazzo degli Uffizi, Florence
Around 1540 Cosimo I de'Medici, Duke of Florence and, after 1569, Grand Duke (Granduca) of Tuscany, moved out of the family palace into the Palazzo Vecchio, which thus became the Palazzo Ducale (Ducal Palace). This left no room for the law-courts and governing body of Florence and plans were drawn up for offices of their own, the Uffizi, to be built adjoining the Palazzo Ducale.
