Caterina Caneva

"An educated, capable, determined, active officer, who experienced all the roles that can be counted in an office of tutelage: the custody of a museum (as vice director of the Uffizi), the arrangement of collections (she was the last to reorganize the Contini-Bonacossi), the organization of exhibitions; the supervision of the territory (she is still remembered with great esteem in the municipalities entrusted to her in Valdarno, in the Florentine Val d’Elsa, in Valdipesa and Chianti), the implementation of already existing local museums and the creation of new ones (especially that of the catthedral of Impruneta and of the abbey of Vallombrosa)"
(Bruno Santi, from La chiesa di San Marco a Firenze, 2009)
