Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Michelangelo’s unfinished projects revealed

2009-10-06

Even though most tend to associate the artist with his beautiful frescoes at the Sistine Chapel or Pieta, the sculpture he created when he was 25, he also left his mark in architecture.

A mark that has gone unrecognized for most until now at the exhibition “Michelangelo, Rome’s architect.”

Casa Buonarroti Foundation

“This exhibition features the work of Michelangelo in Rome, completed projects and the unfinished. It aims to give everyone a new way of seeing the importance of Michelangelo in Rome.”

A new way to view art history. A new way to learn the history of the Eternal City.

The exhibition includes documents from some of the works the artists rendered for the Popes of his time, like the redesign of Campidoglio Square or the construction of the dome at St. Peter’s Basilica.

Probably the most interesting, are the projects he never got the chance to bring to life.

In all, the exhibit features 105 sketches that illustrate Michelangelo as an architect who helped turn Rome into an Eternal City.
