"Searching for Michelangelo in Rome"

Past Live Lecture on April 11th 2022 with Livia Galante

Come and Discover:


How Michelangelo and Rome are almost synonyms: The Sistine Chapel and the Pietà are the crown jewels of the Vatican, but curious travelers are often surprised to discover how many other traces of Michelangelo’s genius are spread across the city.

We will follow young Michelangelo in Rome where his first public commission was the Pietà which granted hm praises and visibility and led to Michelangelo’s commission to build the tomb of Pope Julius II.

The artist had to accept the titanic challenge of transforming the main Papal Chapel, the Sistine, into the marvel we admire today.

The last years of the master were devoted to architectural achievement, with, overall, the outstanding project of St. Peter’s Dome.
