To coincide with Florence's special antiques biennial, famed American artist Jeff Koons will unveil a sculpture next to the iconic statue of David by Michelangelo...

The Renaissance sculptures in Florence's Piazza della Signoria will soon have a unique visitor – Jeff Koons' 11-foot shiny gold stainless steel 'Pluto and Proserpina.' The modern art piece will face off against the classical, iconic statue of David by Michelangelo. 

The Koons 2010 artwork will pop-up in Florence, Italy as part of the Biennale Internazionale dell'Antiquariato, and will be on display in Florence's iconic Piazza from September 25 until December 28 at the end of the year.
