Descrizione articolo


This volume examines in detail the complex story of the architectural production of Michelangelo (1475-1564): his early works in Rome at the beginning of the 16th-century, the Florentine period between 1516 and 1534, including the Biblioteca Laurenziana, and finally the major Roman projects from 1534 to 1564, among them St. Peter's, the Porta Pia, and Santa Maria degli Angeli. An essentially anticlassical architect, Michelangelo replaced proportion with rhythm, shunning the conventional requirments for balance and measure. The authors analyze the artist's complex relations with his papal and Medici patrons and with his own works, whicn often failed to progess beyond the drawing board or were never completed. Michelangelo's drawings with their impatient notations and the architect's impetuous inventions, made them difficult for construction workers to follow. This book reproduces many annotated sketches, pen-and-ink studies, plans and renderings, along with rich black-and-white photographs of the buildings, details and sculptures Michelangelo produced. The book includes a bibliography, index of works, and index of names.

About the Author:

Giulo Carlo Argan (1902-1992) was an Italian art and architecture historian, critic, and strong anti-Fascist voice. He taught at the University of Palermo in the mid-1950s and moved to Rome in 1959, where he was a professor at the University of Rome. He served as mayor of Rome as a Communist from 1976 to 1979, and then as an Italian senator. He is the author of several classic works of art history, including History of Italian Art, The Baroque Age, and Brunelleschi. He was the subject of a conference at the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei in Rome in February 2003. Bruno Contardi (1952-1999) was a curator and arts administrator, and Milan's Superintendent of Artistic and Historical Works.
