Dominant David

This statue literally dominates the city of Florence staying on the top of the Piazzale Michelangelo. This square, dedicated to the great Renaissance artist, presents copies of some of his famous works preserved in Florence, including the David. The statue portrays the biblical hero as he prepares to face Goliath and represents a symbol of the Florentine Republic, vigilant and victorious against its enemies.
Digital photography and use of colour filters to exalt the light blue of this dominant figure to create also a completely new and surreal vision of the sky: it turns into incandescent clouds and the boundaries between the elements - sky and fire- dissolve.
