What you'll do

This tour is dedicated to the great sculptors who lived and worked in Florence specially during the Renaissance. We meet in Piazza Signoria where I can show you some original statues form the Renaissance period. Then we will move to the Bargello Musem ( 5 minutes walking) . In this museum we will see statues done by the most important artists. There is a room dedicated to Michelangelo, where we will see works made by the "young" Michelangelo and other works done during the rest of his life. Then we will visit the upper floor where we will see statues belonging to Donatello, Verrocchio, Giambologna. We will see also the "formelle" from which started the big compoetition between Ghiberti and Brunelleschi. Even the building is part of the history of Florence and will give me the opportunity to tell you about the history of this town.
