Second Italian museum for number of visitors, the Galleria dell’Accademia displays the largest amount of Michelangelo’s sculptures, including the original Michelangelo’s David, easily the most famous sculpture in the world.
Accademia was founded in the 18th century so that students at the nearby Accademia di Belle Arti could study masterpieces firsthand. After the David was moved here in 1873 it has been identified as “Michelangelo’s Museum”.
But the Galleria offers much more: works from 13th to 16th centuries, including paintings by Botticelli; a collection of 19th century plaster models and casts; and the section of antique musical instruments.
