Copy of David

Copy of David

The history

When Michelangelo’s David was moved to the Accademia Gallery in 1873, due to poor conservation conditions, the city of Florence waited until 1910 to have a copy in the original location in front of Palazzo Vecchio. The artist Luigi Arrighetti was commissioned with the work, after a dedicated public tender, which provided for the execution in marble of a copy that was completely identical to the original.

The restoration

The restoration will start in 2022.
