Florence's city hall, once the palace of the ruling Medici family, towers over the main square and overlooks a copy of Michelangelo's David. The original David is the centerpiece of the nearby Accademia gallery, which houses a series of Michelangelo's unfinished statues as well. Looking at David in this temple of humanism is looking at Renaissance man.
