Michelangelo’s drawings – Lecture series

Casa Buonarroti is organising a cycle of conferences dedicated to the most important folios in its collection of Michelangelo’s drawings for the autumn of 2023.

The lectures are part of the project to refurbish the museum room dedicated to the temporary exhibition of drawings, which will be carried out in 2023 to complete the renovation of the layout and information system of the museum rooms housing works by Michelangelo, carried out in the previous year with the aim of improving the psycho-physical conditions of the public during the visit and favouring the full enjoyment of the experience. The refurbishment of the exhibition room is matched by a research and digitisation campaign, with the cards and images of the drawings being made available online.

The subject of the lectures will therefore be the drawings in the collection, presented in their uniqueness but also as an opportunity to delve into Michelangelo‘s more complex projects and his relations with other artists, literati and patrons.
