On Tuesday this week I went to see Michelangelo's David at the Galleria dell'Accademia. And let me tell you! He is SO incredible in person! More majestic and miraculous than I ever imagined he would be. He is ultimate perfection and so much more amazing than pictures can ever do justice. When I entered that room, my heart skipped a beat and I immediately started crying. He is captivating. Michelangelo was a genius. I can only hope that one day I can do work as wonderful and as moving as his. I had never noticed before that David has his sling over his back and rocks in his right hand. Such an amazing experience. I will definitely be going back to see him again.
Then yesterday, me and my friends went to Il Duomo to go on the terrace to see the sights. The views of the city from there are incredible, however I much more prefer the view from San Miniato. This weekend, we head to Siena to see it and then go to a Chianti Wine Festival! Should be fun! Until next time...Love you all!
