The Academia Gallery of Art and Design in Florence began as the first art gallery of drawings in Europe founded in 1561, funded by members of the important Medici family and contained drawings by three masters of mannerism; Giorgio Vasari, Angelo Bronzino, and Bartholomew Ammanati. Years later, in 1784, the Academia Gallery of Art and Design became the Academia of Fine Arts when the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Pietro Leopoldo, decreed that all schools of drawing in Florence were to be combined under one roof with the addition of a gallery of paintings by master artists to assist the apprehension of less experiences artists.The Gallery has held the original David by Michelangelo since 1873 in a special tribune (its copy can be seen in Piazza della Signoria). In fact, it was the intention of the Academia gallery to build a museum dedicated to the great artist Michelangelo exhibiting his original drawings and sculptures but instead the gallery holds only a few of his works like the unfinished statues of the Captives and Saint Mathew and the sculpture of the Pieta which has raised doubts as to whether is truly the work of Michelangelo. Other notable collections on display were done by artists that include Sandro Botticelli, Andrea del Sarto, Ghirlandaio and many others. The famous depiction of Rape of the Sabines in plaster done by Giambologna is also a masterpiece to admire in the Gallery. A section of the gallery, created by the Grand Dukes of Lorraine, is dedicated to an interesting collection of Russian icons and most recently the Gallery has added a curious collection of antique musical instruments.
