David: Michelangelo's masterpiece

David: Michelangelo's masterpiece

One of the beauties of Florence, the capital city of Tuscany, is certainly the David.
This work of art was created by Michelangelo between 1501 and 1504. The marble statue is 5 meters tall and weighs over 5 tons.

Originally the statue was placed in front of the seat of the civic government in Florence, Palazzo della Signoria, in the namesake square. Indeed the statue became symbol of liberty of the Republic of Florence.
In 1873, the original statue was moved to the Galleria dell'Accademia, in order to preserve and protect it against weather and acts of vandalism. It was replaced with a replica.

The statue represent the Biblical hero David. It is a well-liked subject in the florentine art of that period, but unlike other works of art where David is represented victorious over the head of the giant Goliath, Michelangelo decide to depict him right before his battle with Goliath. It is possible to perceive the tension in his eyes and in his right hand, ready to hurl the sling.

The huge block of white marble intended to the work, had non optimal characteristics, making this piece of marble very difficult to be sculpted. It was low quality and it was too long and thin. Agostino di Duccio and Antonio Rossellino had already tried before Michelagelo to sculpt the block, but they both abandoned. Michelangelo was only 26 years old when he decided to take the challenge and the result was incredibly beautiful. The well-known art historian Vasari described David as a miracle that of Michelangelo, to restore to life one who was dead.
