At the end of the 18th century, an art gallery was created. Later, music and art restoration were also attributed to the fine arts. Today the Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts is one of the most visited museums in the world. It contains six unfinished sculptures by Michelangelo, as well as the famous masterpiece of the artist - the statue of David, which adorned the front of the Palazzo Vecchio until 1873.
