Nov 14, 2014 899

The Consulate General of Italy together with the Italian Cultural Institute of New York, and the four Cities of the Medicean Versilia – Pietrasanta, Seravezza, Forte dei Marmi and Stazzema – present "Michelangelo and Versilia", an initiative organized to illustrate the excellences of the territory and to highlight the historical and artistic figure of Michelangelo in the Versilia area, who here lived and worked. Participate in the project also the Artigianart Association and the Cosmave Consortium of Pietrasanta.

Taking Michelangelo's experience in the Versilia region as a starting point, the four Cities cast light on the artistic and cultural traditions that share in common, which origin ties up to the centuries-old activity of extraction and manufacture of marble. "Michelangelo and Versilia" proposes the presentation of two original drawings by Michelangelo, loaned by the Casa Buonarroti Museum.
