Statue of David by Michelangelo (original), Florence
The marble statue of David was presented to the public in 1504 in Florence. The author of this unique creation was the great Michelangelo. He had worked on the sculpture for two years and created a huge marble statue weighing more than six tonnes, and a height of five meters.
The Statue of David stood on the Piazza della Signoria two decades. During this time it was repeatedly subjected to various tests: several times it was struck by lightning, and in 1527 the rebels shot off its hand. Two non-professional reconstructions of the monument have caused even more damage since the statue lost its original upper layer.
How to get
In order to get to the statue of David, you can try orange buses ATAF or taxi.
