Description

Unique contemporary take on 'Grand Tour' architectural model of the unexecuted 'Facade Basilica of San Lorenzo' 1516–1520 by Michelangelo. It is an impression of the original model, hand made in wood by the Dutch Scenographer Rudolph Lutgens. The plan for facade of the Basilica of San Lorenzo 1516–1520, Florence was never executed. The original model in wood is exhibited in Casa Buonarroti a museum in Florence, which building was a property owned by (but never occupied by) the sculptor Michelangelo, which he left to his nephew, Lionardo Buonarroti. The house was converted into a museum dedicated to the artist by his great nephew.
