Florence's Accademia Gallery Reopens with Revamped Displays

The Galleria dell'Accademia di Firenze will reopen to the public tomorrow (6th May). During the most recent lockdown the gallery has spent a great deal of time redisplaying artworks and sculptures within the Tribuna del David, Gipsoteca and the Sala del Colosso. One of the most radical changes includes new displays of busts by Lorenzo Bartolni (1777-1850), which had previously been placed up high and were often overlooked. (pictured) New displays have also been arranged for the Accademia's collection of historical musical instruments, including stringed instruments by Stradivarius.
