In your Transfers Rome private car Rome tour map we suggest you include a visit at the Capitoline Museums, located in Piazza del Campidoglio. It was Michelangelo who, in the middle of the 16th century, designed this fine Roman piazza, which stands on the smallest of the seven hills. The exhibition “1564-2014 MICHELANGELO. A Universal Artist” is dedicated to this great Tuscan artist, a documentary exhibition created to celebrate 450 years since the death of the painter, architect and sculptor of the Italian Renaissance. Michelangelo’s most famous works in Rome are certainly the frescoes on the Vault of the Sistine Chapel and the Last Judgement, which you can admire in the Vatican Museums. The traces left by the Aretine artist in the capital are numerous: the statues of Moses, Rachel and Leah in the Basilica of San Pietro in Vincoli (St. Peter in Chains), the frescoes in the Cappella Paolina (Pauline Chapel) figuring the Conversion of Saul and the Crucifixion of St. Peter, and the architectural projects of St. Peter’s Basilica. Every work by Michelangelo is a breathtaking masterpiece. Following in his footsteps in the eternal city, it is possible to build an ideal Rome tour map that ends in the Vatican City and that can start exactly in Piazza del Campidoglio. From 27th May to 24th September 2014, here in the rooms of the Capitoline Museums it will be possible to visit the exhibition dedicated to this great Italian creative mind. It was important to remember the 450th anniversary of his death with a great exhibition event, in the city where he lived for many years until the end of his life. The museum visit will go through the traces left by Michelangelo in person: projects, drawings, maquettes, writings, letters and poems. Through a series of “thematic contrasts” that aim to highlight the complex creative and crafting phases of Michelangelo’s works, you will experience an exhibition that follows the whole life and art of the author. If you plan to organize a Rome City Tour it’s an appointment you can’t miss.
