Green Room by Ridolfo del Ghirlandaio at the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence in Italy

The Green Room is so-called for its decorative motifs reminiscent of nature, birds, flowers and foliage.

The walls were initially decorated with landscapes, unfortunately now disappeared.

In this room, the Duchess Eleonore of Toledo, the wife of Cosimo I de Medici, administered the Palace's daily life.

Therefore this room corresponded to his work desk where she received the Palace’s staff and took care of the finances, including the grain, silk and luxury fabrics market for which she was in charge.

The fortune of Eleonore of Toledo was such that she could buy the Palazzo Pitti, on the other side of the Arno, which later became the Medici's home.

After this purchase, she built the famous Vasari Corridor, a covered passage, which allows you to reach the Palazzo Pitti from the Uffizi Gallery via the Ponte Vecchio.

But it was also necessary to move from Palazzo Vecchio to the Uffizi Gallery, which was also made possible by building Vasari's Cavalcavia, which links both buildings over Ninna’s street.

When you take a group ticket to visit the Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery, you go across this Cavalcavia, which, by no accident, opens directly in the Green Room, the workroom of Duchess Eleonore.
