Museum Located in the heart of Florence, is one of the most visited museums in the city because it houses an important collection of works by Michelangelo between which stands the David, exposed in the spectacular tribune specifically created. History In 1784, using the environments of the San Matteo Hospital and of the Convent of St. Nicholas of Cafaggio, the Grand Duke Peter Leopold of Lorraine created the Academy of Fine Arts; along this, it was also founded the Accademia Gallery, a museum created to accommodate works of art for the training of the artists. During the course of centuries, it was modified several times to become the current museum mainly dedicated to Michelangelo. Collections In addition to the core of the original works, new acquisitions of old paintings took place during the eighteenth century after the abolition of churches and convents implemented by Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo, and in 1810 by Napoleon; in 1872 was transferred here the David by Michelangelo from Signoria Square to an environment of the gallery called the Tribune. In 1906 was transferred also the San Matteo and in 1909 the four sculptures of the Slaves coming from the Buontalenti Grotto in the Boboli Garden. Inside there is also a collection of plaster by Lorenzo Bartolini, and a section dedicated to the ancient musical instruments; very remarkable are also some paintings on wood by Florentine artists from the thirteenth to the sixteenth century, and the group of Russian icons.
