Via Ricasoli 58/60, Galleria dell’Accademia, Firenze
When his grandnephew published Michelangelo’s poems, he edited them changing all masculine pronouns into feminine. He wanted to dispel the doubts about the artist’s sexual preferences and clean his reputation from the taint of homosexuality. Today, we can safely assume that Michelangelo had many masculine loves in his life but “what we have today is an invisible character because of the harsh light shining on him”, as historian and biographer Antonio Forcellino so cleverly puts it.
