It is one of the most popular museums in the world because it displays the Michelangelo's renowned David and his four Slaves, once in the Buontalenti Grotto inside the Boboli Garden.
The Gallery was founded by the Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo of Lorraine as an educational art collection destined to the students at the Academy of Fine Arts. After rearrangements and 19th century acquisitions, it has become a celebrated museum dedicated to Michelangelo.
Along with Michelangelo's scupltures, the Gallery shows significant works testifying the development of Florentine art from 13th century up to 19th century.
The Gallery is housed in the 14th century rooms once belonging to the old Hospital of St. Matthew and the old convent of St. Niccolò of Cafaggio, renovated in the late 18th century to house the Gallery. In 1882 the "Tribuna" hall was built in order to display Michelangelo's David.
The earliest collection was enlarged with new works coming from Florentine churches and monasteries, after the suppressions of the religious orders in 18th and 19th century. In 1873 Michelangelo's David was moved inside, followed in 1909 by the four "Slaves" (or Prisoners) and St. Matthew.
Along with the famous works by Michelangelo, the collection includes also Florentine paintings from 13th century up to 16th century, original plaster models by Lorenzo Bartolini and Luigi Pampaloni, and a group of Russian icons. A new section dedicated to old musical instruments, once belonged to the Medici and the Lorraine families, was opened in 2001.
