L’adolescente by Michelangelo

for the first time in Rome

L’Adolescente by Michelangelo landed in Rome for the first time ever, directly from the prestigious collections of the Ermitage Museum of St. Petersburg. He is crouched on himself, as if he were to be smashed by a superior strength wrapping its enigmatic, intense posture. It can be described as a tragic beauty, the result of an engrossed suffering rising like a world’s rejection, defined as “evil and vile”.
