The Uffizi Gallery, Florence and the syndrome of Stendhal

The oldest museum in modern Europe is housed in an elegant architectural complex with two parallel wings, that offers perspective views towards the River Arno and Palazzo Vecchio. The concentration of monuments and artistic masterpieces to be admired in Florence is such that it causes a sort of 'surfeit of the soul', a dizziness known as the 'Stendhal Syndrome'. Every glimpse, street and square surprises us with its outstanding beauty.
