Michelangelo in Florence. Imagine walking on the same streets and alleys that Michelangelo walked more than five hundred years ago, seeing the same buildings, churches and squares. Do you know where his career started? Where did you work? Who discovered and made him famous? This Itinerary includes the main places that link the artist to the city of Florence and a visit to two places where his greatest masterpieces are kept: the David and the “Prisons”; and the Basilica of Santa Croce where his monumental tomb is located. Outside we stop in front of Michelangelo's house-museum where he lived and where his youth works are kept today. During the walk I show you some places where the most sensational encounters and clashes took place between the three great ones: Michelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci!
The Bargello is one of the oldest Florentine palaces built in 1255 and home to the Podestà, then prison and finally, from 1865 museum. On the first floor the sculpture of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries including the David di Donatello, masterpieces by Ghiberti, Brunelleschi, Verrocchio and Luca della Robbia. On the ground floor works from the Tuscan 16th century: Michelangelo, Sansovino, Ammannati, Cellini, Giambologna. It is currently one of the most underrated museums of mass tourism and thanks to this it is possible to visit it in peace and recognize all its historical and artistic value: all the works on display are original and visible from very close to appreciate its stylistic details. A true beauty experience!
