Please join us as an armchair travel to view the art amassed by the best institutions. After familiarizing with the history of art collecting we will examine some of the great art collections in the world with particular attention to the Uffizi Galleries in Florence (Italy), the National Gallery in London (UK), and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City (USA). We will also address issues related to repatriation of art and cultural heritage looted during wars and by colonial empires.
