Michelangelo Buonarroti

(1475, Caprese – 1564, Roma) Sculptor, painter, architect and poet, his ability was evident from childhood, moving away from the life of a civil servant that his father wanted him to train with the best masters and patrons. Of Florentine tradition, drawing was the basis of all his art. Without a wife or descendants, his talent surrounded him with outstanding people of the time such as the Medici, kings and nobles of Europe, thinkers and many popes. In addition, he shared a generation with other great artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael.

Michelangelo worked until the day he died: his artistic legacy and his influence on the history of art are unquestionable and, today, his work continues to be admired and studied all over the world.
