Bargello

We visited the Bargello National Museum this morning. This is the place for sculpture. In particular, this is the home of Donatello’s David. Right now it is under restoration. But, the restoration takes place in front of your eyes. Granted the statue is horizontal so you don’t get to walk around it 360 degrees, however, it is better than not seeing it all. They take great effort to explain how they are restoring it. David is very much a modern man; he is even getting some little bits lasered off.
