In 1748, to encourage the study and practice of art, the then Grand Duke Peter Leopold founded the Galleria del’Accademia -- now known as the Accademia Gallery. The hands-on teaching school was equipped with a wide variety of art and craft supplies, including plaster, paint, models and canvas, along with old paintings and models. 

This move threw artists like Jacopo di Cione and Bernardo Daddi into the spotlight, right in the leagues of famed artists like Michelangelo and Giotto. Today, the Accademia Gallery is one of the city of Florence’s most-visited museums, right with the Uffizi Gallery. No amount of time can prepare you for the first glimpse of the awe-inspiring statue of David or the Tree of Life painting!

accademia gallery tickets
Hall of The Colossus

When you enter into the Accademia Gallery, you’ll be greeted with the Hall of The Colossus. The prime attraction in this hall is Giambologna’s magnificent sculpture, ‘Rape of the Sabines’. Completely made from a single block of marble, the sculpture depicts three figures, tightly-wrapped together in a serpentine movement. Surrounding this sculpture is artwork by the likes of Perugino and Botticelli.

The Hall of the Prisoners

This museum hall is named so after the four ‘Slaves’ housed here -- large nude sculptures created by Michelangelo, namely: Awakening Slave, Atlas, Bearded Slave and Young Slave. This room was initially built to host classic paintings and then became an homage to Michelangelo’s unfinished sculptures; they were first commissioned to be a part of the St. Peter’s Basilica, but due to financial shortage, remained in Florence. 

accademia gallery tickets
The Tribune

The Tribune’s reputation precedes it: home to Michelangelo’s ‘David’, one of the most famous sculptures to have ever been created, this museum hall is one of the top-visited rooms at the Accademia. The sculpture, towering at about 17 feet, was completed back in 1504 and depicts strength, beauty and a time period of political turmoil in Florence. Other artwork surrounded David is by Allori and Bronzino.

Gipsoteca Bartolini

This museum hall is prominently dedicated to the life’s work of one of the most brilliant artists of his time, Lorenzo Bartolini. It was in 1784 when Peter Leopold, the then Duke of Tuscany, converted a hospital into a museum for students of the adjoining academy, giving them the opportunity to study the evolution and impact of Renaissance and Florentine art.

Florentine Gothic

The Florentine Gothic sections cover three primary fields of art: the first is dedicated to ancient Gothic art from the 13th and 14th Centuries, with the most famous one being ‘Tree of Life’ by Bonaguida.
