Italia 9

5/19
This day we went to Florence again and for the first half of the day I went to the Uffisis and saw a lot of famous paintings displaying the development of the different renaissance characteristics. It was interesting to see how the artists would learn from each other, use it, and then implement something further in their own work.  After lunch we went and saw Michelangelo’s David. I loved hearing how Michelangelo made the body show even more emotion by how the body was exaggerated in certain aspects, like his hips and muscles. After we went to the Michelangelo museum with the Medici graves and the night and day statues. That was also fascinating to see all of the different symbols used to display a time of day.
