Michelangelo and the Renaissance
One of the most talented artists of his time, Michelangelo has always been a proud Florentine even though he decided to spend a good part of his life in Rome. In Florence we can follow his early steps up to his fifties, considering that our city is not only shrine of one of his most celebrated masterpieces, the famous David, but also possesses many more artistic expressions of the great Renaissance master who has painted the Sistine Chapel . This visit will include the entrances to the Galleria dell’Accademia, the church of San Lorenzo, the Cappelle Mediceeand of course the church of Santa Crocewhere Michelangelo Buonarroti was buried. We can eventually add the Museum Bargello, the Church of Santo Spirito or the Duomo Museum, in case you’d wish to have a wider perspective on the artist’s work. This will obviously be taking more time.
Duration: 4 hours.
Thematic tours can be worked out for many other artists and personalities! For example, Leonardo da Vinci or Beato Angelico or Savonarola or Lorenzo il Magnifico de’ Medici. We can also base the tour on specific requests, such as religious communities or historical as well as artistic subjects. Just let me know your interests and I’ll pick them out to tailor your personal visit.
