Fodor's Expert Review Casa di Giorgio Vasari

Arezzo Historic Home

Giorgio Vasari (1511–74), the region's leading mannerist artist, architect, and art historian, designed and decorated this house after he bought it in 1540. He ended up not spending much time here, since he and his wife moved to Florence in 1554. Today the building houses archives on Vasari, and works by the artist and his peers are on view. In the first room, which Vasari called the "Triumph of Virtue Room," a richly ornamented wooden ceiling shows Virtue combating Envy and Fortune in a central octagon.
