Sculpted between 1501-1504, the piece was originally meant to be an outside decoration of the Cathedral of Florence. Instead, it became a symbol of the commitment of the Florentine State of freedom and independence, as well as a symbol of the Medici’s defeat in 1494.
It still personifies energy, vigor and courage, symbolizing the whole of mankind fighting for survival. The anatomy of David, later reproduced by Michelangelo’s contemporaries, was carefully depicted thanks to the in-depth studies carried out by the great artist. In addition to David, you will also see four statues of the Slaves commissioned by Pope Julius II as a decoration for his grave, as well as famous pieces “Mourning Over Jesus Christ” and “St. Matthew”. The museum houses an interesting collection of paintings from the Middle Ages, Renaissance and early 17th century.
