"This museum boasts many paintings and sculptures, but they're completely overshadowed by one work:

"Michelangelo's colossal David, unveiled in 1504 and now the world's most famed sculpture. It first stood in Piazza della Signoria but was moved to the Accademia in 1873 (a copy was substituted) and placed beneath the rotunda of a room built exclusively for its display."

"Poured concrete mold?" Even the copy of the David in the piazza in front of the Uffizi is marvelous! But the real David is in the Accademia, along with other wonderful sculptures and works of art.
