Il Divino Michelangelo & Il Genio Da Vinci" is an abstract journey inspired by the artistic creation of two great Renaissance artists : Da Vinci (Leonardo di Ser Piero da Vinci, 1452-1519) and Michelangelo (Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, 1475-1564).
The journey begins with the legacy of the artist Michelangelo, known as the Divine. We approach his work from its genesis to its influences on the various artistic strands - painting, sculpture and architecture.
As if designed by God to perform it, Michelangelo created several iconic works. In the show we revisit the hand in the fresco of The Creation of Adam (fresco, 1511), the sculpture of David (1501) and of Bacchus (1596), the warrior who faced Goliath. There are also references to Roman mythology and biblical references with the works Pietà (sculpture, 1498) and in the set of paintings on the Sistine Chapel ceiling (1508-1512) where "The Flood" and "The Last Judgment" can be seen.. The journey ends at the starting point in The Creation of Adam.
On the second part of the show, we contemplate the mind of the restless genius Leonardo Da Vinci, in a visual show through his writings, research, inventions, and studies, to his major works, such as Vitruvian Man (1490), the Last Supper paintings (1495-98), and the Mona Lisa (1503-06).
