Some are characterized more by the art than others.

A 70-year-old man was Saturday hit by an acute injury in the Uffizi gallery in Florence, Italy. It is unclear whether it was a cardiac arrest or a heart attack. Fortunately for the man was a group of tracking also visiting in the gallery, and treated him at the scene. This reports The Times.

the Man is believed to have been hit by Stendhals syndrome, also known as Florence syndrome. The condition (which is not recognised by the medical diagnosesystemer as the DSM-5 and ICD-10) is characterized by dizziness, judgment, hallucinations, and in the worst case a heart attack at the sight of the "overwhelming beauty".

the Syndrome was first described by the French writer Henri Beyles, known under the pseudonym of Stendhal. In the book "Rome, Naples et Florence," from 1817 he writes that he experienced palpitations and dizziness at the sight of the artwork "the Basilica di Santa Croce" in Florence.

the Tourists, who all received acute treatment, should have been hit at different galleries and museums in the Italian city. The symptoms of their include dizziness, palpitations, fatigue, and hallucinations. In the most severe cases, patients unsure of who they were.

Dr. Magherini believed the tourists had been hit by the Stendhal syndrome, and identified "an impressionable personality, the stress associated with traveling" as factors that made them especially vulnerable.

All could, however, affected by the syndrome, he believed, "in the face of a city like Florence, haunted by death, the ghosts and historical perspective".

This he considered as the most beautiful and at the same time "most disturbing" art, and he thought it could get susceptible individuals to get in touch with difficult memories.

A similar syndrome was described by doctors at the Kfar Shaul Mental Health Centre in Jerusalem in 2000. "Jerusalem syndrome" has similar symptoms but is caused by an overwhelming experience of "the holy, historic and heavenly city".
