The Bargello Museum – Medieval Stories, Prisons and 2 more Davids – 1.5  Hour

The Bargello, built in 1255, was the first Town Hall of the city and was used as prison during the whole 18th century.
Its walls witnessed important episodes of civic history. It was the meeting place of the Council of the Hundred in which Dante took part. It witnessed sieges, fires, executions, the most famous perhaps being that of Baroncelli, involved in the Pazzi conspiracy against the Medici family. Leonardo, as other artists, was usually going to the Bargello Palace to study the anatomy of the executed bodies, hanged in the courtyard.
This museum hosts lots of masterpieces by Michelangelo, Giambologna, Donatello and many others, and, because it’s usually not crowded at all, offers a pleasant break from the intensity of the surrounding city center.
