On this day in 1475...

Italian artist Michelangelo Buonarroti, famous for his paintings (the Sistine Chapel), sculpture ("David"), and architecture (the rebuilding of St. Peter's Cathedral), is born in Caprese.

    Ahh... the Sistine Chapel - Cardinal Carafa had fig leaves painted over the genetalia of the characters in the "Last Judgement." You have to love the church's attempts to protect us from arts!

    It was fun to stumble on your blog, I haven't seen you or Sara for quite some time. It appears all is well, I am so pleased to see.
