Visit Caprese in Tuscany Italy In the heart of Tuscany, on a mountain peak next to Arezzo we can find the village with the population of 1800; Caprese de Michelangelo, where on the spring of 1475, the universal genius of Italy Michelangelo Bounarotti was born. The artist’s father who came from the family of Canossa was a Podesta that is a mayor. And in accordance with his position, he lived in the small castle where a museum was setup in memory of his son. Michelangelo loved to draw when he was very young and he wasn’t yet 14 when he became one of Domenico Ghirlandaio’s students. The young man who had soon surpassed his master was taken under the wing of Lorenzo de Medici. The artist’s first outstanding work was the statue of David which helped him to procure several commissions. Pope Julius II had him do this tomb. Among the ornaments there, we can find the famous Statue of Moses. Lorenzo and Ghirlandaio de Medici’s tombs are also decorated with fine pieces of work and the Pieta is the main site of Saint Peter’s Basilica. Michelangelo was also gifted as an architect designing among others, the dome of the Saint Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican and the Roman Capitolium Circus. And as a painter, his frescos in this huge chapel are of course outstanding. In George of Azaris work, Great Masters We Can Be, “All craftsmen owe him an infinite and everduring debt of gratitude, since he at one blow broke down the bands and chains which barred the path they trod in common."
