Michelangelo Musei Capitolini from 27 May till 14 September 2014.

The exhibition Michelangelo. Incontrare un artista universale, covering the life and work

of this colossus for all times, is to be held at the Musei Capitolini on the occasion of the

450th anniversary of the death of Michelangelo Buonarroti in Rome on 18 February 1564.

In the heart of the city, in that very Piazza del Campidoglio which the genius of Michelangelo

made unique in the world, over one hundred and fifty works, of which around seventy by

the Tuscan artist, from many of the leading cultural institutions in Italy and elsewhere,

are to commemorate the 450th anniversary of the death of an artist who was so magnificent

as to have a lasting influence not only on the arts in Italy but also on all universally known culture.
 
An exhibition which overcomes the objective impossibility of exhibiting “non-transportable”

Michelangelo masterpieces (a prime example being the frescoes in the Sistine chapel) by

showing works which can be admired together.
