Statues by Donatello and Michelangelo in front of the Palazzo Vecchio - Florence


In front of the Palazzo Vecchio stand four magnificent statues representing the Republic. There's ""The Lion"" and ""Judith and Holofernes"" by Donatello, then ""Hercules and Cacus"" and ""David"" by Michelangelo. Note the way Donatello sought to reproduce the movement of the garments portrayed in Roman statues, and his ability to lend expression to the faces he sculpted. As for ""David"", this is considered THE sculpted masterpiece by Michelangelo and is one of the most famous statues in the world. Why? Well, because Michelangelo gave his very soul to his statues. They are more than just a representation of human reality, they seem to be brought to life with an inner intensity which is still present today. Take the time to admire these magnificent statues.
