Art Ambassadors

Developed by the Education Department, this project involves the participation of Tuscan secondary schools. Students, therefore, can experience the exciting opportunity to organize free guided tours, also in foreign languages, in the museums pertaining the Uffizi Galleries (i.e. Gallery of the Statues and Paintings, Pitti Palace's museums and Boboli Garden). Thus enhancing their cultural competence and linguistic skills, students give visitors free information on the collections and the palaces where they are conserved, as well as notions of history of art and cultural history. It is undoubtedly an extraordinary and enriching opportunity both for students and for visitors.

Students give their tours inside the museums preferably during spring and compatibly with their ordinary curricular activities, according to the opening hours of the museums themselves.
