A tribute to Michelangelo assembled by a grand nephew. It is a beautiful home in itself with some early sculptures and unfinished pieces. Not crowded (a nice change of pace) although most of not all signage in Italian. With works by him and of him, it provides an interesting perspective into his life.

This museum is about Michelangelo's nephew, who was born after the artist's death, laying claim to his famous Uncle. It was Buonarroti's home, never that of the artists. The signage throughout is hit and miss with very little in English. During my visit I had the feeling that Buonarroti milked everything he could out of his Uncle's genius for his own gain.

This was the meeting place and beginning of our Context: "Michelanglo in Florence Tour" - which I highly recommend.

The two main pieces of Michelanglo's earlier works that are housed here are "Madonna of the Stairs" and the "Battle of the Centaurs". The first of which he is thought to have carved when he was 15 and the latter around the age of 17. Both works are equally stunning relief sculptures.

We arrived reasonably early to Casa Buonarroti and had the salon housing these two pieces to ourselves for at least half an hour - which was a complete joy.

Our personal tour of everything Michelangelo was enhanced by having recently read "The Agony & the Ecstasy". This surprisingly large, not-crowded home (palace?) contains several of his early works as well as other art work picturing Michelangelo along with others. Even though he never lived here, it exists through the efforts of his family and is worth the 1-2 hour visit.

The Casa Buonarroti is where we are told Michelangelo lived. It is on Via Ghibellina. It also houses some works of art by Michelangelo.
