Gallery Of The Academy Of Florence

    If we visited Florence, one of the essential visits is to the Gallery of the Academy, and the main reason is that to visit Florence and not to see the David de Miguel Angel it is how to visit Rome and not to see the Coliseo. But still being an essential visit, this it is the second visited museum more of Florence behind the Uffizi Gallery. But this us does not have to be strange, because Florence is the cradle of the Renaissance and the Uffizi Gallery, without having the David, offers to the visitor beautiful works of geniuses like Botticelli, Leonardo l$da Vinci, Miguel Angel, Rafael or Tiziano; being the most important Birth of Venus de Botticelli and the Adoration of the Magicians of Leonardo l$da Vinci. But returning to the Gallery of the Academy, and to the David de Miguel Angel, we have to emphasize that this is an impressive white marble sculpture of 5.17 meters of height that represents David before facing Goliat. This work was realised between 1501 and 1504 in the factories of Opera of the Duomo.

    Being its first destimo the doors of the Ponte Vecchio in the Piazza della Signoria. But it was transferred to the Gallery of Academy in 1873, in order to preserve it of the inclemencies of the time, and to protect the sculpture for future generations. In the gallery of Miguel Angel we will be able to find four prisoners, carved between 1521 and 1523 and destined to the tomb of Julio II. The works, without finishing, are very interesting, because of the heavy stone they seem to try to leave, hercleas, the inacabadas figures. An outline of San Mateo and a Piet, also unfinished precede to the gigantic David. To the 25 years, Miguel Angel broke with the canons of the classic David, with sheepskin and chaff. Creating a loaded David of life and desire of victory, with vigorous musculatura, that leans in a leg to impel the action, an action that is intuited in its own hands.
