“The Academy was built in the 1784 when the Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo reorganized the Academy of the Arts of Design, founded in 1563 by Cosimo I de'Medici, in the modern Academy of Fine Arts. The new institution occupied the rooms of the fourteenth century of San Matteo Hospital and those of the convent of San Niccolò di Cafaggio. The museum was enriched with the suppression of churches and convents ordered by Pietro Leopoldo in 1786 and by Napoleone Bonaparte in 1810. The decisive event in the history of the museum was the transfer of Michelangelo's David from Piazza della Signoria in August 1873. The most famous sculpture in the world waited nine years, kept in a wooden case, the conclusion of the construction of the Tribune designed by the architect Emilio De Fabris to welcome it. Today's Academy Gallery was established in 1882.”

“It is the mausuleo of the Medici dynasty. The dark crypt precedes the imposing, sumptuous Cappela dei Principi: a vast seventeenth-eighteenth-century setting covered with hard stone inlays made by the famous Opificio, where the sarcophagi of the Medici Grand Dukes dominate. Adjacent is the famous New Sagrestia by Michelangelo - an extraordinary synthesis of sculpture and architecture - in which we can admire the Tombs of Giuliano Duca di Nemours and Lorenzo Duca di Urbino, in addition to the sublime Madonna with Child.”

“The Basilica of Santa Maria Novella was founded by the friars of the Dominican Order in the first half of the thirteenth century, becoming one of the most important religious and artistic landmarks in Italy. The celebrity of Santa Maria Novella during the medieval and Renaissance periods favored the concentration on the whole of very important works by artists of the caliber of Giotto, Brunelleschi, Masaccio, Michelangelo, Ghirlandaio, Botticelli and Vasari, just to name a few. This particular artistic and religious fortune has made the place inextricably linked to his works of art. These have been realized specifically for Santa Maria Novella.”
