An episode from the series SECRETS OF HISTORY - PORTRAITS
Michelangelo was an artist from Tuscany totally dedicated to his art and whose richest patrons paid a fortune for his services. He lived alone, prey to many demons until his death in Rome at the age of 89. He blossomed artistically thanks to Lorenzo de’ Medici.
He left behind the famous frescoes on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican, a masterpiece of the Renaissance.
