Michelangelo's Secret Room in Florence - Background

The small 10x3 meter room was Michelangelo's refuge between June and October 1530. Actually, Michelangelo had to hide from the guards of Pope Clement VII, a Medici's Pope, angry with him for his republican leanings. In fact, the republican government had managed to temporarily expel the Medici from Florence.

Michelangelo therefore had to spend endless days hidden in the small room and took advantage of the white walls of this environment to draw some sketches, drafts of monumental format, which herald some of his most famous sculptural and pictorial works.

 Michelangelo's Secret Room opens to the public. With the conclusion of the work to adapt the Medici Chapels Museum to safety regulations, it has been possible to open this precious environment to visitors in total safety.
