Effetto Michelangelo 1874-2014
Honoring this year 450 years since the death of Michelangelo, the Accademia of Art and Design of Florence is exhibiting a selection of prints and lithographs curated by Niccolò Niccolai. Effetto Michelangelo 1874-2014 presents images made for a celebration that took place in the 1873 when the Piazzale Michelangelo was inaugurated as a symbolic location of the city, featuring the bronze copy of The David and dedicated to his maker. The event was in fact covered by 37 different newspapers and journals in several languages catering to an international public. The exhibition is on view in the Torre di San Niccolò, during its special summer opening to the public, and is located just below Piazzale Michelangelo, in Piazza Poggi along the Arno River.
