Bargello Museum, my private tour
During the 1800 was still alive the memory of what was written centuries before : the presence in the Chapel of the Bargello palace (a medieval Palace) of one of the first portraits of Dante Alighieri painted by Giotto and his workshop. Well, the discovery of Dante's portrait was the motivation for the total restoration of the building which in 1865 became a national museum.
The Museum has a remarkable collection of sculpture and works of art.
What is the "outside"
The Bargello museum occupies an impressive building built for the Capitano del Popolo in the mid-13th century, which later became the seat of the Podesta and Council of Justice.
Since 1865 the palazzo houses the National Museum, bringing together many important Renaissance sculptures, including masterpieces by Donatello (the marble David, the bronze David, the San George), Luca della Robbia (the glazed terracotta technique), Andrea del Verrocchio (the bronze David), Michelangelo (the marble Baccus, the marble David-Apollo, the marble bust of Brutus, the marble Tondo Pitti) , Benvenuto Cellini (marble and bronze statues) , Giambologna (the bronze Bacchus and the bronze flying mercury ) , Bartolomeo Ammannati, Baccio Bandinelli.
The museum was subsequently enriched with splendid collections of bronzes, majolica, waxes, enamels, medals, seals, ivories, amber, tapestries, furniture and textiles from the Medici collections and those of private donors.
