The Uffizi complex in Florence, Italy. Construction of the Uffizi began in 1560 CE, and was completed in 1581 CE. It was originally intended to act as administrative office complex, and retains the name "Uffizi" (Italian for "offices"). The Uffizi was commissioned by Cosimo I de’ Medici, the Duke of Florence (ruled 1537-1569 CE). Currently known as the Uffizi Gallery (Le Galleria degli Uffizi), it has served as a gallery and art museum since 1865 CE.
