The Uffizi Gallery in Florence hosts a small exhibition with photographs of Andy Warhol by the Italian photographer Aurelio Amendola.

Ten images are on display, taken at the Factory in New York on two different occasions when the internationally acclaimed photographer from Pistoia, Tuscany met the superstar of the pop art movement. The first meeting was in 1977, the second in 1986, only a few months before Warhol’s death.

Two of the photographs will be donated by Amendola to the museum, meaning that in a way Andy Warhol becomes part of the permanent collection of the Uffizi Gallery.
