VIRTUAL TOUR: All About Michelangelo in Florence

VIRTUAL TOUR: All About Michelangelo in Florence

star-5

Michelangelo, I love you! Follow us on a virtual tour about this artist's life, deeply connected to main landmarks in Florence. His birth, his childhood, his life experiences: not only a sculptor and a painter, but a young boy and later a man too. We will try to answer to some of the questions about this genius: was he really bad tempered? Was he really a good friend and a supporter of the Medici family? Did he later change his mind? Why did he join the Florentine Repubblica? Why had he a broken nose? Why did he never go back to Florence but in a coffin? Let's figure out the answers for these questions while virtually visiting the best highlights of Florence: Palazzo Medici, Santa Croce, San Lorenzo, Palazzo Vecchio. We will jump from one side of the city to another searching for the authentic Michelangelo. Dont' worry, we will not get tired of walking because we will be comfortably seated at home!

VIRTUAL TOUR: the Bargello Museum in Florence

VIRTUAL TOUR: the Bargello Museum in Florence

Among the many artistic pearls that embellish Florence we find the Bargello Museum: a museum in the heart of the city which, although less famous than other Florentine must-sees, represents a rarity not to be missed, especially for those who love sculpture. The gothic-style building has the appearance of a real fortress! Designed by Arnolfo di Cambio's father, Lapo Tedesco, it was built from 1255 to be the palace of the Captain of the people until, in the second half of the 16th century, it became the Palace of the Bargello, that was the chief of the police, therefore the seat of city prisons too. At the center of its courtyard we find today a well in whose place, until the abolition of death penalty implemented by Pietro Leopoldo Habsburg-Lorraine in the late 700s, there was the halter where the executions took place. Only in 1865, on the occasion of the sixth centenary of Dante Alighieri's birth, the Bargello was converted into the current museum.

Fresco Workshop in Atelier

Fresco Workshop in Atelier

Fresco, meaning fresh in Italian, is the revered art of painting on fast-drying damp plaster with water based pigments. During the Renaissance, fresco painting was considered the true test of an artist's skill, since one had to finish before the plaster dried in order to ensure the adhesion of the image to the wall. During this 3-hour hands-on Florence Fresco Workshop, we'll learn basic fresco technique from a local Florentine artist who is a master of fresco painting.

VIRTUAL TOUR of the Religious Center of Florence: the Duomo and its Monuments

VIRTUAL TOUR of the Religious Center of Florence: the Duomo and its Monuments

When you visit Florence you can't miss its Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore, the 4-th biggest cathedral in Europe! The long history of its construction, the colours of marble and the many details for its decoration of the outside in comparison with the sobriety of its interior design. We will talk about world famous and less-known facts during our virtual tour. Get ready to see the biggest painted surface in the world: the Dome's frescoes. 3.600 square metres of paintings in front of you! How many people are painted there? Can we recognize any of them? Are there Medicis among them? We will answer all these questions. And that's not all. Can you imagine that the actual Gregorian calendar was introduced thanks to an astronomical instrument which is kept inside the cathedral? Do you want to know why the clock of the cathedral has 24 hours and what it shows? And also: how many people can stay inside the cathedral at the same time? The 2-nd part of the tour is dedicated to the Baptistery.
