Museum and monument, a place to remember and celebrate Michelangelo’s genius as well as an opulent Baroque apparatus and showcase for the family’s valuable art collections, Casa Buonarroti represents one of the most interesting Florentine museums to visit. Written by the woman who directed the museum for thirty years, this volume manages to offer a description at once wide-ranging and minutely detailed. In the over twenty years that have elapsed since the first edition of this guide to Casa Buonarroti, several changes – some quite extensive – have been made to the museum itinerary: for example, the setting up of a new room (the Sala dei Bozzetti), made possible by the space left free following the return of Michelangelo’s magnificent early Crucifix to the Church of Santo Spirito. This new guide finally and fully mirrors the current situation of Casa Buonarroti, which in recent years has seen the addition of new works to the museum, as well as recording the painful absence of the great Model for a River God, which once completed the title given to the Fabbrica di San Lorenzo room. A lengthy and meticulous revision which will also provide readers with a major and exhaustive bibliographical updating.
