What makes this exhibit interesting?

There are many interesting aspects of Michelangelo—A Different View that make it an unforgettable and unique experience. Never before have the Vatican Museums given an official license for such an exhibit, and did so with the help of the exhibit’s scientific director, Prof. Dr. Arnold Nesselrath, director from the Vatican Museum.

Using state-of-the-art technology, the exhibit includes 48 magnificent images from the Sistine Chapel, brilliantly recreated with superb detail on a special, delicate fabric, and several on a world-class Alu-Dibond, a material trusted by modern photographers. The careful photo-real precision brings some of the greatest art ever made to a completely new setting—right here at home!

For a truly “different view,” the chapel’s stunning ceiling is placed flat on the floor, allowing for an intimacy no visitor to the Sistine Chapel can experience, making this exhibit a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Did you reproduce everything inside the Sistine Chapel?

The exhibit focuses on Michelangelo’s contributions to the Sistine Chapel, including the artwork from the ceiling and Last Judgment. By bringing the artwork closer, we hope the visitor will be able to appreciate these famous masterpieces from a new perspective.

Is the artwork in the exhibit the same size as the original in the Vatican?

Because the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is curved, these reproductions are as close to the original size as possible. However, our mission was never to copy the entire ceiling, so some of the bordering elements such as the Ignudi angels and other framing devices are not included. It was necessary to crop some of the images in order to fit them into the display design, but rest assured: all key images from the Chapel are included in the exhibit.
