CELEBRATING LEONARDO 500 YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH...
“LEONARDO & MICHELANGELO – TWO OUTSIDERS OF THE ITALIAN RENAISSANCE"
This tour highlights two outsiders of the Italian Renaissance: Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo Buonarroti. The sublime painter versus the divine sculptor. Before visiting Leonardo’s Last Supper at Santa Maria delle Grazie you will admire within the Sforza Castle premises his famous Hall of Boards, a trompe l’oeil depicting a thick bower of mulberry trees that will reopen exceptionally, May 2019, to the public for the 500 anniversary of the artist’s death.The recent and not yet completed restoration work has revealed, unexpectedly, autograph drawings by Leonardo, so far unknown even to experts.
The tour will continue with a visit to the Museum of the Pietà to admire one of the most extraordinary works of art by Michelangelo Buonarroti, his late and unfinished Pietà Rondanini. The statue may well be considered a sorrowful meditation upon the theme of death as well as an experimental interpretation of a codified iconography that Michelangelo innovates completely. But his reclining Virgin Mary leaning over the limp body of Christ is also the embodiment of motherly love and pain. Left unfinished by the elder master when he passed away in 1564, the masterpiece was purchased in the early 1950’s by Milan’s city council.
