Michelangelo’s Pietà, which he carved at the age of 80, is the showstopper here; a more somber highlight is Donatello’s heartrending Mary Magdalene, carved from wood. It is countered by the delightfully boisterous, plump and funny Choir Boys, by Della Robbia. Don’t miss the silver altar from the Baptistery, a dazzling tour de force of gold and silver smithing.
