Caprese Michelangelo - Museo Michelangelo Museum

Michelangelo Museum

A celebration of the artist

Caprese Michelangelo

Located in Michelangelo's birth home, the Palazzo Clusini, the idea for the museum dates to the 1875 celebrations of the centenary of Michelangelo's birth (in 1475), though it wasn't officially opened until the 1964 centenary of the artist's death. The museum documents the sculptural works of the artist through a collection of copies of his works and works by 19th-20th century artists that were created in his honour.

The nucleus of the collection came from Florentine galleries and the collection was then expanded through donations from contemporary artists and photographers. Recently the museum acquired the Guidoni Collection of 19th - 20th century sculpture including works by Antonio Canova and Umberto Boccioni.
