Dopo oltre 20 anni siamo ritornati con amici a visitare il Museo Michelangiolesco in quel di Caprese Michelangelo, in provincia di Arezzo, di fatto ad una ventina di chilometri dall’uscita di Pieve Sa... more »After more than 20 years we have returned with friends to visit the Museum by Michelangelo in Caprese Michelangelo, Arezzo, about twenty kilometers from the exit of Pieve Santo Stefano on E45. The Museum is inside the rocca di Michelangelo Caprese Michelangelo and consists of three main buildings, the Palazzo del Podestà, Palazzo Clusini and the High Court, and a garden with outdoor exposure of modern works: here I was born in 1475 Michelangelo Buonarroti where the father lived as parental responsibility. The Museum currently does not preserve the original furnishings of the birthplace, but contemporaries: residential environments of the first floor are decorated with Renaissance furniture not originating in the home. The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes and is enriched with copies of some of the famous works of Michelangelo. Entrance 5 Euros, well spent!
As described by many others - Michelangelo was born here but for me that was enough. I am not an art student or historian and I do not know much about the works of Michelangelo - none of which were even visualised until many many years later. That being said I did learn about some of his works and about the works of some of his fellow artists of his time. The views from the museum are stunning, most of the pieces on display are (in my eyes) well worth a look and the young man who runs and curates the museum was a most gracious host. The grounds themselves needed a bit of weeding, mowing and tidying up but since it is largely run by one person this can be forgiven. All in all I really enjoyed my visit. Whilst you are in Caprese Michelangelo I recommend you have lunch at Buca di Michelangelo (see my review). Enjoy
Very intresting.Worth to travel.
Well worth a visit. Very remore area. The arts exhibition is not special but the buildings are interesting to see.
In the Palazzo del Podestà, which is also considered the birthplace of Michelangelo, Michelangelo Museum is located today. In the rooms you will find also the triptych Madonna with Saints by Giuliano Amidei, belonging to the Abbey of San Martino a Tifi. Two message boards contain copies photocopying certain documents about Michelangelo, including the birth certificate, and some precious volumes of historical archives. Here there is also a bronze copy of the bust of Daniele da Volterra representative Michelangelo and guarded at the Bargello in Florence.
To visit, beautiful environment between past and nature, feels like stepping back in time
