    David once again

    by KiNyA Written Jan 8, 2004

    David

    Fondest memory: The original Michelangelo's David was completed in 1504.
    So this colossal nude Classical statue depicts the biblical hero who killed the giant Goliath.

    Favorite thing: At the centre of the very pretty fountain in porphyry is a winged putto in bronze, a copy of the original by Andrea del Verrocchio (1476) housed in the Palace Museum.

    Favorite thing: Cross the Arno and see the Plaza Pitti. Within, you will find the Boboli Gardens - a vast and impressive expanse of sculpture and (in best Monte Python voice) shrubbery.

    Favorite thing: These are the doors of the battistero, right next to the duomo. They're called the Golden Gate. Each square represents a story from the Bible.
