Michelangelo – A Different View
Under license from the Vatican Museums, this exhibition offers the most complete and authentic reproduction of Michelangelo’s beautiful ceiling frescoes of the Sistine Chapel to be shown outside the Vatican.
Some 50 pieces, including an almost original size, 4.6m x 20m reproduction of The Genesis (which includes 'The Creation of Man') and a 3.8m x 3.8m version of The Last Judgment are just 1-2 metres away from the viewer, while audio guides, accessible via personal devices (please bring your own phone and headset), mean visitors can experience the Florentine master’s interpretation of the Bible's Creation story in a way they never imagined.
As an addition to – and to complete – the exhibition, fourteen of these impressive frescoes await visitors in the entrance to the exhibition. Reproductions of scenes from the lives of Jesus and Moses. painted by Sandro Botticelli, Pietro Perugino, Domenico Ghirlandaio and Cosimo Rosselli, provide additional historical background and allow for a deeper insight into this epoch.
With no time constraints, visitors can allow these masterpieces to truly soak in.
