Florence's world-famous Uffizi Gallery reopens for visitors

Jun 04, 2020 10:42 IST

The world-famous Uffizi Gallery in Florence opened its doors to visitors, after being locked down for 85 days amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Hundreds of people wearing masks queued up on the first day. The gallery is famous for iconic works by Italian Renaissance masters including Botticelli, Raphael and Leonardo Da Vinci. The museum director shared that during the lockdown, the gallery lost almost one million visitors and 12 million euros in revenue. Stringent measures including thermal scanners, distribution of antibacterial gel, and markings for social distancing have been enforced to contain the spread of  Covid-19. Only 450 people will be allowed inside the museum during one session.
