The Florence Academy and the David

Florence has so many treasures, perhaps the most well-known is the 1504 masterpiece from Michelangelo:  The David.  The David is a testament to the human ideal, the arrogance of youth and the great potential of mankind.  The Academy in Florence houses the David but also many other works by Michelangelo as well as an amazing collection of statuary and late Medieval and early Renaissance work.
