Alla scoperta della Galleria dell'Accademia

Florence is home to the world-famous Galleria dell'Accademia, founded in the 18th century as a result of the school of Fine Arts founded by Giorgio Vasari with the approval of Cosimo I de' Medici in 1563.

Thanks to the birth of the gallery at the behest of Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo, one of the most famous museums in Europe was opened and its prestige increased when, in 1873, Michelangelo's David was placed inside it..

To discover the Accademia Gallery's collection at its best, let our guides lead you through the many works on display and, of course, David.

You will be able to admire the model of the Rape of the Sabine Women, a study made by Giambologna for his sculpture which is still located in the Loggia dei Lanzi in Piazza della Signoria. You will see the plaster models that are part of the Gipsoteca and Michelangelo's renowned collection including his Prigioni and the spectacular David.
