Summary
Visited by one and half million people every year, the Uffizi is one of the oldest art museums in the western world, boasting paintings and sculpture by the greatest masters of the Renaissance. Inside the Uffizi Gallery, Florence, we re-examine the famous conspiracy against Lorenzo de Medici - godfather of the Renaissance - to discover who was really pulling the strings. We rediscover a long lost martial art, then descend into a crypt to hunt for the bones of a notorious artist. We find out why a wild boar's nose is a good luck charm, then visit an alchemist's sanctuary to investigate his cause of death. And finally, we reveal what happened in Florence during the final days of World War Two, when the fate of the museum hung in the balance.
