In 1561 Cosimo I de’ Medici gave Giorgio Vasari a house in the Santa Croce neighbourhood in recognition of his artistic achievements. With help from his workshop assistants, Vasari decorated the walls of the Sala Grande on the first floor in around 1572 with frescoes focusing on the Arts and the primacy of Drawing. Since his death in 1574, only the Sala Grande has remained untouched by the countless renovation schemes to which the palazzo has been subjected down the centuries. After lengthy restoration, the Great Hall regained its former appareance, and was opened to the public for the first time, in 2011.
