This fascinating volume explores the complex relationship between Michelangelo and the city he called home for most of his life. Lavishly illustrated and richly informative, it tells the story of Michelangelo's meteoric rise and artistic breakthroughs, of his tempestuous relations with powerful patrons, and of his austere but passionate private life. Each chapter focuses on a particular work that amazed Michelangelo's contemporaries and that still impresses today's visitors. The book offers a revealing portrait of Roman culture, art, and politics, as well as a visual feast of Renaissance art and contemporary photographs. Street maps allow the reader to navigate through the city and discover Rome as Michelangelo knew it and as it exists today.
