David: Expo Milano 2015 image
Michelangelo's David on tour in Milan during the six months of Expo. Not quite the statue preserved in Accademia Gallery and sculpted by Michelangelo's hands, but even a prestigious copy that Florence shows as the copy in Piazza della Signoria, in front of Palazzo Vecchio. Michelangelo's David, "art and genius Italian icon in the world," not just will arrive in town, but will be the Italian Pavilion iconic image at Expo 2015 in Milan. For this will be a station of honor, will be placed at the center of Italian Pavilion and then welcomes millions of visitors. The Tuscany will be so present in Milan, with a stand of 240 square meters located at the Italian Pavilion entrance. Tuscany then symbolically represent the whole of Italy!
