Interactive tour from the comfort of your home to discover the Bargello including Donatello's David and masterpieces by Giambologna and Michelangelo
Among the many artistic pearls that embellish Florence is Palazzo del Bargello: a museum in the heart of the city which, although less famous than other Florentine must-sees, represents a rarity not to be missed, especially for those who love sculpture.
The building, in Gothic style, has the appearance of a fortress, and not surprisingly! Building was started in 1255 by Lapo Tedesco to house public political offices. In the second half of the 16th century, it became the seat of the Bargello, the Chief of Police, and many of its rooms were transformed into cells for prisoners. Today, at the center of the courtyard, we find a well, right in the spot where gallows once stood for the executions of those sentenced to death. The death penalty was abolished by Pietro Leopoldo Habsburg-Lorraine in the late 700s, the first country in Europe to undertake the path of reforms in the field of justice. However, another century would pass before the Palazzo del Bargello was definitively transformed into a National Museum in 1865 with its rich collection of sculptures and artistic objects of all kinds.
