Where is Michelangelo’s David?

Michelangelo’s David is in the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence on Via Ricasoli 60, open from Tuesday  to Sunday from 8:15 am to 6:00 pm.

The Academy Gallery is considered the House of David; In fact, the magnificent sculpture of Michelangelo was carved in its interior. Carved between 1501 and 1504 to be an external decoration of the Florence Cathedral, Michelangelo’s David became a symbol of commitment by the Florentine state for freedom and independence, as well as a symbol of the fall of the Medici.

The work represents energy, vigor and courage, symbolizing the entire struggle of humanity for survival. His anatomy, reproduced later by Michelangelo’s contemporaries, was carefully carved, thanks to the profound studies of the great artist.

David has always been considered the perfect ideal of male beauty in art, just as the Botticelli Venus is considered the female beauty canon. Many artists and art experts believe that David is the most beautiful artistic piece ever created by man.

In addition to David, there are 4 statues of the Slave commissioned by Pope Julius II as the decoration of his tomb, called The Prisons, and again “La Pietà” and “San Matteo”. The museum also houses an interesting collection of paintings from the Middle Ages, Renaissance and early 17th century.
