Galleria dell'Accademia (Florence, Italy)

The Accademia is famous for one particular exhibit, Michelangelo’s David. It was moved here in 1873 from the Piazza della Signoria, where a replica now stands. The statue is regarded as the most famous piece of Italian Renaissance sculpture. 16 feet high, it was carved from a single block of marble and took three years to complete. Commissioned in 1501, it is an allegory of Florentine freedom from oppression, and its size and proportions indicate it was intended as an outdoor statue. The gallery was created in 1784 as part of the Accademia delle Belle Arti (Fine Arts Academy) so that students could see great works of the past. Five other Michelangelo sculptures are on display, his unfinished “Prisoners” and “St Matthew”. It also has works by Giambologna, Botticelli, Lippi and Bronzino. A copy of Giambologna’s “Rape of the Sabines”, exhibited here, also stands in the Piazza della Signoria. As the Uffizi brings out more of its treasures for public display, but is pressed for space, many are being housed here and in other Florentine galleries. For opening times see the website. It is suggested that visitors avoid the lengthy queues and buy tickets in advance on-line.
