The Definitive Work
A concert of authors deals in a more comprehensive way with the overall analysis of Buonarroti's work. Together with his pictorial masterpieces and sculpture, the volume exposes architectural, philosophical and poetic questions also looking at the daily life of the mighty master.
The volume reveals all the humanity and complexity of Michelangelo, and allows to the reader to physically live the parable of this indefatigable creator.
The overall result is a complete vision of Michelangelo, of all his works, and of the deep reasons of the methods that are at the basis of his magnificent and timeless artistic creations.
