At 17ft (5.17 metres) this gigantic statue towers above everyone. It is an amazing work of art; carved from a single block of Carrara marble it was sculpted by Michelangelo in his early twenties and depicts the biblical hero David who slew the giant Goliath.

This unparalleled statue was unveiled in 1504 and became a symbol of the defense of civil liberties embodied by the Florentine Republic.
