Tour | Two Michelangelos of Rome: Illustrated Art Tour (virtual)


Join in on a walk through the artistic heritage of two geniuses of the same name without whom Rome would not be the same. Renaissance sculptor, painter and architect Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) marked an era with most of his work done in the Eternal City. His most famous works are the frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, the statue of Pieta at the St Peter's Basilica, the statue of Moses at the Basilica of St. Peter in Chains. Another genius who represented a turning point in the history of painting was Michelangelo Merisi (1571-1610), better known as Caravaggio. Twenty five of his paintings, divided between churches, palaces and museums in Rome, have been attracting the connoisseurs and novel art-lovers alike.
