Spend an enlightening time amid the iconic works of art contained within Florence’s renowned Accademia Gallery. In here you have the opportunity of coming face to face with a variety of historic masterpieces, including one of the most iconic symbols of Florence and of the history of art: the statue of David, crafted by the otherworldly hands of Michelangelo – not the ninja turtle, but the most famous sculptor of the Renaissance. Many questions surround the statue of David. Why is it such an important icon? What did it represent in its time? What is it that makes it a pinnacle of perfection? And, furthermore, how did Michelangelo extract such a seemingly natural figure from a block of marble? The David is not the only instance where he performed this feat of artistry; how he extracted the pathos of a bereaved mother in his timeless Pieta – the statue of the Virgin Mary holding the deceased body of her son – continues to bewilder experts around the world.
