The Bargello Museum houses what is arguably the world's greatest collection of Renaissance sculptures. Renaissance art expert Rocky Ruggiero delves into the history of the 13th-century building that houses the collection as well as the sculptural masterpieces that it contains. Among them are the so-called competition panels by Lorenzo Ghiberti and Filippo Brunelleschi depicting the sacrifice of Isaac, Donatello’s statues of David (one version in marble and one in bronze) and St. George, Verrocchio’s David, and Michelangelo’s first commissioned sculpture, which depicted Bacchus.
