A biographical portrait of the great artist through notes, letters, sketches and poems: autographic documents from the archives of the Casa Buonarroti, some of which already presented at international exhibitions in the United States, Japan and Russia, make it possible to reconstruct Michelangelo’s private and professional life, from his relations with family, friends and illustrious patrons to the fate of his most important projects. The thrilling sequence of Michelangelo’s originals is complemented by a choice of paintings, medals, engravings, drawing, printed volumes and casts that provide great insight into his life.
