Michelangelo Buonarroti: A gift from heaven that left us 450 years ago today.

Birth of a Renaissance Master: Michelangelo – March 6th, 1475

Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was born on the 6th of March in 1475. In my opinion he is the epitome of the High Renaissance.

“David”. Created between 1501 and 1504 from Carrara marble. Currently located in the Accademia di Belle Arti Firenze.

Thank you, sir, for your endless inspiration and contribution to our culture. You are missed but could never be forgotten.

Renaissance master, Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni – 6 March 1475–18 February 1564.
