The Uffizi Gallery of Florence, Italy was the star of the show last night at the Friends of the Uffizi’s lecture event graciously hosted by RoboVault the ultra secure automated storage facility (the only facility of its kind in the US). Gordon A. Lewis, Jr., advisor to the Friends of the Uffizi and the Vice President of the Fine Arts Conservancy in Palm Beach, presented a fascinating lecture on the damage the Uffizi has faced since WWII and the dedicated individuals who have worked endless hours over decades to preserve and restore the treasures inside the world famous gallery. No stranger to art preservation, protection and restoration methods, Susan McGregor, President and General Manager of RoboVault, also a board member of the Friends of the Uffizi, provided hors d’oeuvres and cocktails for her guests and had a special surprise in store for them. After Mr. Lewis’ lecture, Susan showcased RoboVault’s capabilities with a different type of Italian masterpiece, a Lamborghini. Guests watched in awe as the Automated Retrieval system went to work, moving the car to its appropriate place within the vault.
