Black David unveiled in Florence

Symbol of grief caused by terror, violence

(ANSA) - Florence, July 15 - A life-size copy of Michelangelo's David in Carrara marble painted in black and lying down was unveiled Friday in Florence's central Piazza della Repubblica to symbolize the suffering caused by terror and violence worldwide.
    Florence Mayor Dario Nardella and a representative of the local French community, Gaelle Barrè, attended the unveiling of the statue, called Noi ('Us' in Italian) in the aftermath of the Bastille Day terror attack in Nice that killed at least 84 people.
    Noi will remain on display until July 21, to coincide with Michelangelo Week concerts and exhibitions dedicated to the artist.
