Italian artist, Michelangelo Buonarroti (March 6, 1475–February 18, 1564) is undoubtedly one of Italy’s most famous artists and his restored home is just as breathtaking as his artwork.

Michelangelo’s most famous work is the painting of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel that was commissioned by Pope Julius II between 1508-1512 but he was also a brilliant Italian Renaissance poet, architect, engineer and sculptor.
