A Walking Tour Following the Route of Michelangelo's David
In 1504, Florence simmers with political intrigue and artistic ingenuity. The Medici family plots their return to prominence, but the city’s new leaders have other ideas. They have commissioned the young sculptor Michelangelo Buonarroti to create a colossal David to stand as a symbol of the new Republic against the Medici’ Goliath.
Medici sympathizers have hired a band of mercenaries to ensure that this rumored masterpiece will never survive atop it’s intended pedestal at the gates of the Palazzo Vecchio.
Follow the mercenary Alessio around Florence Cathedral and through the narrow streets and alleyways as he works to bring his clients’ destructive wishes to fruition in the Piazza della Signoria.
