The Galleria dell’Accademia rises where once stood two ancient cloisters - San Matteo monastery and San Niccolò di Cafaggio convent, which occupied the entire block between Piazza Santissima Annunziata and Via Ricasoli.
The vast setting resembles a Latin church with a cross floor plan.
The lateral wings of the building and the Galleria dei Prigioni occupy the spaces of the medieval San Matteo Hospital, while the Tribuna that hosts the statue of David was specifically designed by architect Emilio De Fabris and erected between 1873 and 1882.
