One of the most famous sculptures in the world is the "David" in Florence, which Michelangelo created 500 years ago. In addition to the original preserved down to this day, there are numerous copies existing in different sizes and materials. The Strassacker art casting foundry in Süßen near Göppingen was founded in 1919 and is today one of the leading international manufacturers for sculptures and architectural elements of cast bronze.
