The visit in this museum will be focused on the David and the Prisoners by Michelangelo. You will be fascinated by these masterpieces because we will unveil the secrets behind their beauty and their creator’s thoughts and life. The lesser-known Prisoners are intriguing because they reveal the personal torment of Michelangelo who sculpted the beautiful figures, struggling to escape from the stone.
