Description

Welcome to the Accademia Gallery, not a large museum but rich in sentiment and history.
Born in 1784 from the assembly of a hospital and a convent, thanks to the Granduca Pietro Leopoldo di Lorena: the museum offers the largest and most important collection in the world of paintings with a gold background, not to mention the Museum of musical instruments, great passion of the Grand Prince Ferdinando de 'Medici.
The picture gallery was enriched early and extraordinarily with paintings from convents, monasteries and other religious institutions suppressed first by Pietro Leopoldo and then by Napoleon.
But it was 1872 the definitive turning point in the history of the museum, when it was decided to transfer Michelangelo's David to it, subtracting it from the deterioration due to its original outdoor location, in Piazza Signoria.
The statue was slung in a complex wooden chariot and ran on rails through the streets of the center to the Accademia: on 22 July 1882 the museum was finally inaugurated.
