Accademia Gallery in Florence
Academy Gallery, a collection of wonderful artistic treasures
The Accademia Gallery in Florence is known for containing several sculptures by Michelangelo: the Prisoners, the St. Matthew and the famous David. In the adjacent rooms, important works of art from the nineteenth century have been collected from the Academy of Design, the Academy of Fine Arts and from convents.
They are mostly religious paintings by major artists who were working in and around Florence from the second half of the thirteenth century until the end of the sixteenth century. In particular, the collection of paintings with gold backgrounds is unique in the world. In the rooms on the first floor, you can admire a magnificent set of late Gothic altarpieces. Also of note are the plaster casts of two sculptors of the nineteenth century: L. Bartolini and L. Pampaloni, as well as the collection of Russian icons.
Recently the Gallery has been enriched with the Department of Musical Instruments, which includes ancient tools from the Luigi Cherubini Conservatorio, taken from the Medici and Lorraine collections.
