    If you say Uffizi Gallery, your mind goes automatically to the Venus by Botticelli, the Maestà by Giotto or the Tondo Doni by Michelangelo. Maybe, you don’t even notice the series of small portraits on display in the three corridors of the museum. This is the so-called Serie Gioviana. It’s a collection of portraits of illustrious men and women ever since: popes, kings, emperors and sultans, cardinals and noblemen, saints and ecclesiastics, scientists and literary men, artists and leaders of mercenaries. The collection was begun in 1552 on the will of the Grand Duke Cosimo I de’ Medici, who sent the court painter Cristofano dell’Altissimo to Como to copy the portraits of the Universal Gallery of the Men of the Bishop Paolo Giovio, who was in possession of a remarkable portraits’ series, depicted using medals, coins and previous paintings as a model. At the beginning the collection was in Palazzo Vecchio, in the Globe Hall, later on, when the number of pictures got too big, it was moved to the Uffizi Gallery. Cristofano worked on it until 1589 and today the collection counts 488 portraits.
