Retracing History- Florentine Streets

Florentine street

Did Michelangelo, Botticelli, da Vinci, Donatello traverse these streets?

Perhaps not

But I like to think otherwise

And that I am retracing history

Wow! What a feeling!

Pieta – A Divine Experience

Pieta

Pietà (1498-1499) by Michelangelo Buonarotti, housed in St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City.

Don’t be surprised if your eyes well up. Being in it’s presence is an intensely emotional experience.

I was told that Michelangelo was just 24 when he completed this masterpiece. Does that make it a case of divine intervention? We shall never know but can for sure presume.

Also this happens to be the only work that Michelangelo ever signed.
