Academy Gallery of Fine Arts

Introdution

Florentine abbey comes from 978 b.C. founded by Benedettini monks grateful even to Willa of Tuscany patron of many acts of supporting the evolution of the abbey. Willa was mother of Ugo of Tuscany become marquis. Ugo was even rememebered by Dante as "the great Baron" which gave really much money to the monks for the abbey. After him, popes and important personalities of the age, participated to patron the abbey giving money or just exclusive prerogatives (commercial).

The Benedettini monks where closed by the books: writing them, bind them, sell them. In fact behind books there is the control of the human knowledge! During 1285, Arnolfo di cambio changed the original church in a gothic abbey even changing the internal orientation.

Michelangelo David - FronteFew words.

The gallery was created by the Archduke Leopold of Lorraine in 1784 by a decree that encompassed all of the kingdom design schools in one location. The Academy of Design maintained its name and status created by Vasari in 1561 and was equipped with a gallery of ancient paintings for the study of young students.

The Accademia Gallery, along with the teaching classrooms, was designed and rearranged in 1781 by Gaspare Maria Paoletti. In the first room the original plaster model of Giambologna for the marble sculpture of the Rape of the Sabines (Loggia dei Lanzi) and works of 16th century Mannerists are offered to the view.

For some years now, it's hosting the famous statue of Michelangelo's David.

On the walls, behind the Prisons and the San Matteo, always by Buonarroti (1505), are the Flemish tapestries with the History of Genesis, on cartoons by Van Orley (1552). Next to the right is the Pietà, called Palestrina, according to many critics, not by Michelangeloma of his school. On the right we find a series of rooms where there is the famous Cassone Adimari, depicting an elegant wedding procession in Piazza del Duomo, probably performed by Giovanni di ser Giovanni, brother of Masaccio (1420 ca.), a Madonna with Child attributed to Botticelli, works by Florentine artists and Perugino. On the left there is a room with a vast plaster collection of Tuscan artists of the 19th century
