Cosimo de’ Medici had commissioned Giorgio Vasari, his favorite architect, to design a grandiose structure next to the Palazzo Vecchio, the seat of power, to house the magistrates, the Florentine Guilds’ seats, a vast theatre, and judicial offices (hence the name “Uffizi,” which means “offices” in Italian).
