The original is in Florence

Many visitors to Copenhagen is amazed to see the statue of David in copper on the harbour. There are many full-sized replicas of the statue around the world, perhaps the most prominent being the one in the original's position in the Piazza della Signoria in Florence, Italy. The original sculpture was moved indoors in 1873 to the Accademia Gallery in Florence, where it attracts many visitors. The one in Denmark is less of an attraction but still a crowd-pleaser. -RS
