Michelangelo’s Shopping List


What’s the diet of a genius?
Michelangelo and Da Vinci would answer in a very different way to this question, as they would have different ideas about topics like art and politics. The exhibition “Michelangelo Divine Artist” shows various aspects of one of the greatest minds in history: sculptures, drawings, painting, architectural projects and stock in trade tell you more about the artist and his private life! But the most curious object is perhaps Michelangelo’s shopping list. Travel with us back in time, imagine being one of Michelangelo’s apprentices and having to satisfy the many requests of your master. Dive into the everyday life of the Genoa of that time. Where could it be, the smelly anchovies, the herrings and the salami asked by the master? Where could you find the wine? Who sells the right vegetables?
