This exhibition is dedicated to Michelangelo Buonarroti, one of the greatest artists to live during

the Renaissance. He is also known as Il Divino (the Divine), and his influence on art is still visible today.

His creative genius found expression as a sculptor, painter, architect, and even poet. One of his most impressive works includes scenes of the Genesis he painted on the ceiling in the Sistine Chapel built

in the Vatican. These scenes depict the way humanity should live from the moment of its creation till

the day of the Last Judgment.


This painting covers more than 500 square meters and comprises some 300 figures. The centerpiece

of the composition includes nine scenes from the Old Testament divided into three sections, i. e.

the Creation of the Earth, the Creation and Downfall of Human Kind and the Essence of Human Kind exemplified by Noah and his family. The ceiling of the chapel depicts Michelangelo’s worldview.

His frescoes are a hymn of bodily and spiritual beauty that asserts the infinite creative power of God and the man who was created in the image and likeness of God.


The Creation of Adam is the most famous fresco of this Chapel. Two hands (that of God and Adam) moving towards each other became a symbol of the Renaissance. This unique symbol is still present

in mass culture and even advertising.

Enhanced by modern visual effects, the lively images created by Michelangelo are supported

by the timeless music of Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frideric Handel, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to create a breath-taking and emotional experience that brings Buonarroti’s paintings even closer to the modern spectator. Those already familiar with Michelangelo’s works are sure to discover new, unexpected interpretations of his masterpieces.
