A THEATRE FOR NIOBE: THE REBIRTH OF A REGAL ROOM IN THE UFFIZI. Ed. by Antonio Natali and Antonella Romualdi. Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence, 2009. Published by Giunti Editore, Florence, in association with Firenze Musei, Florence. 336 pp. with 265 ills. (36 col.). 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9788809742789 In English.
Carefully documents the history and elaborate restoration of the Uffizi Gallery's "Niobe Room," which was severely damaged as a result of a 1993 bombing, examining the room's original arrangement and decoration in the late 18th century as a space devoted to an exceptional group of classical statues (thought to be Roman copies of late Hellenistic originals) that were discovered in the late 16th century, the ensemble depicting the tragic mythic figure of Niobe and her ill-fated children; the volume also thoroughly describes the restoration and re-installation of the large-scale paintings by Rubens and Grisoni that decorate the gallery.
