"Il Gigante: Michelangelo, Florence and the David 1492-1504" by Anton Gill
Following the death of Lorenzo de Medici, Florence had fallen into a period of uncertainty and disarray. Despite the turmoil at the time, artwork and artists continued to flourish, especially the up-and-coming Michelangelo Buonarroti. Michelangelo’s masterwork “Il Gigante” (or the “David”), became a symbol for not only the city of Florence in their pursuit of independence, but also became representative of the tormented young artist himself.
