at the Uffizi -- Two of Renaissance Italy's most revered
images are enshrined here: The Birth of Venus (1484) and The
Allegory of Spring (1482), by Botticelli. Their evocation of love as
humanity's loftiest ideal -- not to mention sensuous beauty of the highest order
-- continues to strike a chord amongst admirers in the 21st century.
