Inside the Uffizi | Corinna Belz, Enrique Sánchez Lansch | Germany, 2021, 96 minutes, English, Italian and German with Hebrew subtitles
Introduction: Ronili Lustig Steinmetz, Head of Exhibitions and Collections Management (in Hebrew)

You are invited on a private tour of a museum – the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. With its 500 rooms, visited by thousands of people every day, the Uffizi Gallery houses some of the world’s most important treasures by masters like Caravaggio, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Boticelli, and many others. The film’s hero is the Museum Director Eike Schmidt, who never stops working. He is everywhere, energetically moving between rooms, seriously discussing upcoming exhibitions with experts and curators and checking, at the end of each day, that the doors have been locked. One minute he hosts important donors at the galleries, the other he calls his maintenance staff to find out the reason for a blackout. The film presents a vibrant lively place with a dedicated team of workers who work energetically to innovate, renovate and change, and bring the works of art closer to the young audience of the 21st century,
