the bargello was built in 1255 as florence's town hall. in the 16th century it became florence's prison. in 1865 the bargello was converted to an art gallery showcasing florentine renaissance sculpture. some examples from the collection are michelangelo's "bacchus", giambologna's "mercury", verrocchio's "lady with a posy", and donatello's "david".
