The world famous sculpture “David” was erected at the Music Plaza before Ningbo Grand Theater in Ningbo city on Saturday.   

A grand unveiling ceremony was held at the plaza, with the vice mayor of Ningbo city Cheng Yuechong and his Italian counterpart Mr. Gianni in attendance.   

The sculpture was from Florence City Hall, marking an important event for good relations between Ningbo and Florence.  

It is the first time Florence City Hall has given out a replica of the sculpture “David” as a gift.
