It seems the city is filled with Davids, but it's been so long ago that I don't remember which I saw. It's thrilling to see such sculpture in these settings.

Eu lembro que quando entrei na Accademia e vi a escultura do DAvid, fiquei de boca aberta, é muito maravilhoso!
Meu sonho agora é voltar lá com o Cezar e a minha filhota.Firenze é um lugar muito especial, respiramos arte!
Obrigada pela linda lembrança,
Léia

I've seen David inside the gallery and on top of the hill. Didn't know there were others. I love this sculpture, but I think I love Pieta just a bit more (although I saw it in the gallery where I could almost touch it and it's since been move to St Peter's in Rome and sits behind glass and cordoned off).
