David (well, a copy) The original by Michelangelo is inside a museum. This one on the Piazza della Signoria is a very fine old copy. The building behind David is being restored, so he is protected by scaffolding (and little else). Honestly, it seems that Florence is just full of shamelessly naked men; perhaps I ought to have brought a supply of fig leaves from our tree back in Montisi! Personally, I am too modest to step out without my chemise and at least two petticoats.
