Uffizi director Eike Schmidt comments: “ Article link https://www.italy24news.com/en/2021/02/uffizi-galleries-20000-visitors-in-two-weeks-of-reopening.html
The numbers of the latest reopening confirm the strong desire of citizens for culture. We hope that the new closure will not last long. Just in these days a study by the University of Berlin has been released according to which the museums and theaters with reduced coexistence are public places with the lowest risk of contagion: a much lower risk than supermarkets, shops and restaurants. Art and culture are essential for everyone! “.
From tomorrow, the third period of closure for the Galleria begins from the beginning of the pandemic: the first started with the general lockdown on 8 March 2020 and lasted until 2 June; the second started on November 5, 2020 and ended on January 20, 2021.
I hope you are in health and well.
