2005 Posthumous Award Recipient. The last Medici heir, Anna Maria Luisa de’ Medici was a woman whose far-reaching vision safeguarded Florence’s cultural heritage for future generations. She is best-known for creating the Convention of the Family by which the Medici dynasty’s colossal collection was bequeathed to the Florentine state. This included the contents of the Medici villas, the Uffizi and Palazzo Pitti. The well-loved "Elettrice Palatina" willed that after her death no work be moved from the city or taken from its citizens. Anna Maria Luisa de’ Medici was the only daughter of Cosimo III de’ Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany and Margherita Louise d’Orlèans.
