The Academy was built in the 1784 when the Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo reorganized the Academy of the Arts of Design, founded in 1563 by Cosimo I de'Medici, in the modern Academy of Fine Arts. The new institution occupied the rooms of the fourteenth century of San Matteo Hospital and those of the convent of San Niccolò di Cafaggio. The museum was enriched with the suppression of churches and convents ordered by Pietro Leopoldo in 1786 and by Napoleone Bonaparte in 1810. The decisive event in the history of the museum was the transfer of Michelangelo's David from Piazza della Signoria in August 1873. The most famous sculpture in the world waited nine years, kept in a wooden case, the conclusion of the construction of the Tribune designed by the architect Emilio De Fabris to welcome it. Today's Academy Gallery was established in 1882.

The Basilica of Santa Maria Novella was founded by the friars of the Dominican Order in the first half of the thirteenth century, becoming one of the most important religious and artistic landmarks in Italy. The celebrity of Santa Maria Novella during the medieval and Renaissance periods favored the concentration on the whole of very important works by artists of the caliber of Giotto, Brunelleschi, Masaccio, Michelangelo, Ghirlandaio, Botticelli and Vasari, just to name a few. This particular artistic and religious fortune has made the place inextricably linked to his works of art. These have been realized specifically for Santa Maria Novella.

Purchased in 1550 by Cosimo I de Medici and by his wife Eleonora of Toledo to transform it into the new grand-ducal residence, Palazzo Pitti soon became the symbol of the consolidated power of the Medici over Tuscany. Palace of two other dynasties, the Habsburg-Lorraine (successors of the Medici from 1737) and of the Savoys, who inhabited it as royal of Italy since 1865, Palazzo Pitti still bears the name of its first owner, the Florentine banker Luca Pitti, who in the mid-fifteenth century wanted to build it - perhaps designed by Brunelleschi - beyond the Arno, at the foot of the Boboli hill.

Piazzale Michelangelo is the most famous panoramic point in Florence, a splendid terrace overlooking the city named to one of the most important Florentine Renaissance artists: Michelangelo Buonarroti. The construction of the square was part of the urban renewal on the occasion of the election of Florence as the capital of Italy and in 1873 the construction sites were opened, inaugurating the square two years later. In the design of the architect Giuseppe Poggi, the entire square was to become a monument to Michelangelo: even the neoclassical loggia was proposed as a museum where all the works of the great artist present in Florence could be brought together. In the end the idea of ​​a museum was no longer considered valid and in 1876 the lodge was immediately used as a cafe-restaurant. In the center of the square there is a monument composed of bronze copies of some of Michelangelo's works: the four allegories of the Medici chapels of San Lorenzo and the imposing David, who looks towards the hills opposite the city. The square is the Florentine panoramic terrace par excellence, a favorite destination for citizens and tourists who want to enjoy the beautiful Florence from a suggestive perspective.
