Piazzale Michelangelo

Designed in 1869 by the Florentine architect Giuseppe Poggi.

It was built in 1875 when the city was the capital of Italy, a period in which numerous avenues for social and urban renewal were also created.

Poggi created the square as a monument for the celebration of Michelangelo, one of the greatest Renaissance artists.

This is why you will find, in the center, the Monument to Michelangelo, which includes replicas of five of the artist's most famous statues.

The David and the allegories The Day, The Night, Twilight and Dawn.

Michelangelo created the Allegories to decorate the new sacristy of the Medici Chapels, where they are still visible.

The original David is exhibited in the Academy Gallery.
