Perspectives: Florence

I was just going through some old photos for a project and ran across this one of my husband watching the action around the base of the Michelangelo’s original Renaissance marble statue, David, housed in the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence. The O.G. sculpture dates from the early 16th century and is seventeen feet tall. He was carved from single block of marble from the quarries in Carrara in Tuscany. We visited Italy in 2017.

Here are some interesting facts about David. Another cool thing you can see at the Accademia Gallery is the tenor viola made by Antonio Stradivari (my husband was more enamored by that than David).
