A must, if you are heading to Rome or you've just visited the Sixtine Chapel

Mchelangelo was one of the most intriguing persoanlities in the Italian renaissance: a genius in painting and art, a fascinating personality with shadows in private life.
Let's start with Casa Michelangelo, the house bought by his nephew after Michelangelo's death, to host some of his juvenile works, then head to the Accademia museum to discover his amazing David and end up at San Lorenzo, where we will be visiting both the Library and the Medici Chapel, where he created a perennial memorial for Laurence the Magnificent, his brother Giuliano and two other members of the Medici family.
