  • Listen to stories about its amazing creation.
  • Hear about the artist - Michelangelo, a fascinating and difficult genius, who died a miserly multi-millionaire.

David may be world famous, yet few people know the extraordinary history behind Michelangelo’s stunning Renaissance statue. Widely considered the most important and impressive work of art ever created, David has many stories to tell, from the saga of his commission, to his birth from a massive and long-neglected slab of quarried marble, and finally to his logistically complex placement in Florence.

Hear these stories and more, including tales of the tormented genius and miserly ways of Michelangelo, arguably the most talented master of the Renaissance, on ArtViva’s visit to the Accademia Museum.
