A painter, sculptor, architect and writer, Michelangelo was a peerless master of all the arts.

Considered a peerless master of all the arts by his contemporaries, Michelangelo (1475-1564) made his mark on all the phases of the Renaissance, from the golden age of Lorenzo il Magnifico to the dramatic epilogue of the decadence of the Counter-Reformation. A painter, architect and writer, Michelangelo saw himself above all as a sculptor. Shaping a block of marble with a chisel, he worked to allow the “concept”, the idea trapped inside the material, to express and elevate itself: in this solitary, intense action the energy of the genius is concentrated, assuaging the anxiety of the present, approaching the gates of immortality.
