In describing the experience of the Friends of the Uffizi, Florentine weekend, A few words come to mind immediately, “Once in a life time experience , “A cultural banquet of pure joy” and the feeling that I was part of a loving group of friends that preserve support and protect the amazing art treasures of the world. The Friends of the Uffizi give members a true feeling of inclusion and relationship. These are amazing gifts that Lisa Marie Brown and the Friends of the Uffizi offer.
Memories: Let’s start with the Gala and concert,an indescribable evening of beautiful and breathtaking music followed by a spectacular dinner in the splendor of Palazzo Pitti,
A night that most mere mortals will never experience. But we did!
The private tour of the Uffizi Gallery given by the director, Eike Schmidt on a day when the gallery was closed to the public. This tour again was stunning informative and intimate and a once in a life time experience. I had looked forward to the Florentine weekend for over a year, however these stunning memories will stay with me for a lifetime.
