“The Divine Michelangelo: His Life and His Works”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
Michelangelo Buonarroti’s artistic career spanned more than seven decades, during which time he produced some of the most extraordinary works of art in human history. Dividing his time between his native city of Florence and his adopted city of Rome, the “Divine Michelangelo”, as he was known, was the first true master of the three major artistic disciplines – sculpture, painting, and architecture. This lecture will examine the epic life of the artist, using his milestone works of art and architecture to illustrate the “chapters” of the artist’s biographical history.
