  • I read many reviews that can be confusing: the David (and prisons, and all other masterpieces) are in the Gallery of the Academy not to be confused with the Academy of fine arts! The latter sees its roots in the Compagnia di San Luca (also known as painters) from which was to be born, in 1563, under the patronage of Cosimo I de Medici, and at the suggestion of Giorgio Vasari, the Academy of design that had among its purposes that of teaching of the arts and had as its first President Michelangelo Buonarroti. It was at the end of the 1,700 that Peter Leopold founded the Academy of fine arts which was intended to bring together all schools belonging to the design; contextually was created the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno, which still operates globally for the dissemination of art. The Academy of fine arts is now a university level institution that welcomes students from all over the world, in addition to the educational plan, exhibitions of students, conventions, events.

  • Accademia di Belle Arti is obligatory to visit! Went in the afternoon, promised there was no cashier queues. A small museum, 2 hours enough to show everything. But one is David! Basically all stand around him, all the other exhibits bypass quickly. very Interesting statue of "Slaves" by Michelangelo, and the statue of David-just gorgeous! And musical instruments! Ticket 12 euros. Recommend to everyone!
