This year I’ve visited Firenze two times already, and I’m going back next week for an art show in the Uffizi.
Last I went I saw Michelangelo’s “David” for the first time, I got really emotional. It’s awe inspiring how he could manage to do something so complicated at such a young age.
Makes you wonder what you can accomplish if you really set your mind to it…
