The Bargello

The National Museum at the Bargello, one of the most important in Florence, houses a wonderful collection of sculpture. It is, perhaps, to sculpture, what the Uffizi is to painting.

Amongst the works depicted here are Francavilla’s Jason; Donatello’s David; Desiderio da Settignano’s John the Baptist; and Donatello’s Dancing Cherub.
