At the Bargello this morning

When you live in a city like Florence, it is easy to pass by and ignore the obvious treasures, the ones turned permanent tenants in one’s consciousness and seem to no longer require dusting, just because we know ‘they will always be there’.

Well, this morning, together with our art history teacher, we’ve visited the Bargello.

Here are some sketches from this visit. Do not miss the Bargello! It holds some very important keys to the understanding of the renaissance, why it started off in Florence at the time it did. The greatness of Brunelleschi, Donatello, Michelangelo and the path he opened for the great artists who followed in their footsteps.
