The Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo founded the Academy in 1784, now an important Florentine museum, as a school for teaching the arts.

The incomplete San Matteo and the unfinished statue of the Carceri are among the Michelangelo sculptures that are kept in Florence's Galleria dell'Accademia, which is highly well known and famous for housing the original David statue was moved here from Piazza della Signoria in 1873.

At the Accademia Gallery, in addition to the works of Michelangelo, there is a vast collection of religious paintings by the major artists working in Florence and its surroundings between the mid-thirteenth and the end of the sixteenth century, particularly important for his paintings with a gold background.

Recently the Gallery has been further enriched by the important collection of ancient musical instruments of the Cherubini Conservatory.

The best Renaissance buildings in Florence, including Brunelleschi's Cathedral, Giotto's Bell Tower, and the Baptistery are all included, for a view from outside, in your private guided walking tour.

F.A.Q.


  • Is the statue of David in Florence the original?


The most famous statue of David, sculpted by Michelangelo, is indeed located in Florence, Italy. However, the original statue is not displayed in an outdoor setting. The original marble statue of David, created by Michelangelo between 1501 and 1504, is housed in the Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence.

The statue that stands in the Piazza della Signoria in Florence is a replica. This replica was placed in the square in 1910 to protect the original sculpture from further weathering and damage, as it had stood outdoors for centuries. The replica allows visitors to see a representation of David in its intended outdoor setting while preserving the original masterpiece indoors where it can be better protected and appreciated.
