MILAN — Ten 16th-century tapestries in Florence will return to their original home, courtesy of Gucci. Proceeds from the Gucci Museo will help create the conditions — from lighting to antipollution protection — to display the artistic works in the Sala dei Duecento (the Hall of the Two Hundreds) at the storied Palazzo Vecchio, Florence’s town hall.

Gucci is channeling about 340,000 euros, or $460,353 at current exchange, into the safekeeping of Florence’s masterpieces, which is equivalent to about 50 percent of ticket sales from its museum. The tapestries will be displayed on a quarterly rotating basis in order to preserve the quality of the restoration, which will be completed by specialized center Opificio delle Pietre Dure in the city.
