Are you interested in events that are dedicated to art? If your answer is yes, then we recommend online meeting that it’s about Michelangelo Buonarotti and his masterpieces. Francesca Romani will tell us about this famous Italian sculptor, painter, architect and poet. Michelangelo Buonarroti was born in Caprese in 1475 and died in Rome in 1564. Sculptor, painter, architect and poet, he was born of a descendant father of a Florentine family of Guelph tradition. The drawings of the early years, copies of figures of masters of the past, such as Giotto and Masaccio, reveal in the young artist an extraordinary ability to orient himself critically and identify the fundamental points of the artistic tradition. Noticed by Lorenzo the Magnificent, Michelangelo is welcomed by him in his palace where, in contact with the great humanist (including Marsilio Ficino, Pico della Mirandola, Poliziano), he has the opportunity to enrich his culture. At the Medici court, he made his first sculptures, the “Battle of the Centaurs” and the “Madonna della Scala”. After the fall of the Medici, he left Florence, taking refuge first in Venice and then in Bologna, where he remained for about a year. Then he went to Rome where he sculpted the famous “Pietà”. Between 1501 and 1505 he returned to Florence and produced a series of masterpieces: the “Tondo Doni”, “Battle of Cascina” and the famous marble David, placed at the entrance of Palazzo Vecchio as a symbol of Florence but also as the pinnacle of the Renaissance ideal of the free man and architect of his own destiny. In May 1508, after a sensational break and reconciliation with Pope Julius II, he signed the contract for the decoration of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, which he worked on continuously from the summer of that year until 1512. Michelangelo was already acclaimed by contemporaries as the greatest artist of all time, and greatly influenced all the art of the century.
