the accademia

I loved the Accademia. Most people go there with the intention to see the David sculpture (I did), but there are other great things here too. Michealangelo's unfinished sculptures are so amazingly beautiful, in a way better than anything that he finished, because they carry such a mystery of what could have been in them. They look like creatures trapped within themselves because you can see the characters they were beginning to take. David is amazing too, for me more overwhelming than anything, because it was so much larger than I thought it would be. I spent half an hour walking around it.
