Galleria dell’Accademia, Firenze, Italy
The Galleria owes its vast popularity to the presence of some sculptures by Michelangelo: the Prisoners , the St. Matthew and sopprattutto, the famous David. In adjacent spaces, derived from two ancient convents, were collected from the nineteenth century, important works of art from the Academy of Design, Academy of Fine Arts and from suppressed convents. It is largely of paintings by major artists working in and around Florence, from the second half of the thirteenth century to the end of the sixteenth century.
