Casa di Vasari

Casa di Vasari

Arezzo's most famous home-town artist is Giorgio Vasari, a noted painter, architect and writer. He practiced mannerism and coined the phrase himself; he described the period in which he worked as "la maniera moderna", or the "modern style". He was greatly influenced by his friend Michelangelo and other Renaissance masters, copying their style and implementing new techniques to create "mannerism," which bridged the transition from the Renaissance era to the Baroque. Vasari penned works on art history and style which are still read today.

Giorgio Vasari was the architect who designed the Loggia in Arezzo, but also the famous Loggia of the Uffizi, along with the now-famous Vasari Corridor, an enclosed walkway which linked the Uffizi Gallery to the Pitti Palace on the other side of the Arno, spanning the Ponte Vecchio and traversing a number of other buildings along the way.

The Vasari family residence in Arezzo is a museum dedicated to the talented man, highlighting his life and work. The frescoed ceilings and walls show off his artistic talent. Especially noteworthy is the Sala della Fama, where the fresco includes not only a self-portrait of Vasari, but portraits of other Tuscan artists, including Luca Signorelli, Michelangelo and Andrea del Sarto. Throughout the home are artistic renditions of allegorical, mythical and religious scenes, and interpretive displays to understand the history and the artist.
