AGNES PARRONCHI RESTORES MICHELANGELO'S WORLD-FAMOUS DAVID IN FLORENCE.
Agnes Parronchi looks up as she cleans part of Michelangelo's
world-famous David, during restoration work at the Galleria dell
Accademia in Florence September 16, 2002. Restoration began today in
what is due to be a seven-month long public bath. It is the first time
the five-metre nude statue has been cleaned since it was moved into the
gallery in 1873 and is expected to cost about 150,000 euros.
