Michelangelo's Italy

published 8 years ago by Rick Steves

Join Gene Openshaw, co-author of Rick Steves' Europe 101 History and Art, as he shares the work and travels of Michelangelo. Michelangelo Buonarroti — sculptor, painter, architect and poet — was both prolific and well-traveled. We'll trace the life, work and travels of "Earth's Greatest Artist," visiting the Italian cities where he created his masterpieces. You may be surprised to find that the Italy of today is just as culturally rich as it was in the days of Michelangelo.
