“The Creator made Italy from designs by Michelangelo.” –Mark Twain

Firenze makes your senses reel. This city is treasure-crammed: The Duomo; dominating the Tuscan skyline, with it’s multi-coloured facade of pink, white and green marble, the Ponte Vechio bridge, Uffizi and Accademia Galleries, and countless more art and historical treasures. SecondLife has brought some of this to life at the re-creation of the Piazza della Signoria, the civic center of Florentine life. In the square you will find bits and pieces of Firenze scattered about. Among some of the displays you will see the bronze statue of Perseus holding out the severed head of Medusa, carved by Cellini, and of course, the most famous and magnificent statue of David, by Michelangelo. To look upon David is to behold perfection.
