Michelangelo's architecture focus of show

UPI is reporting a story they picked up from ANSA:

MichelangelofacadeA new show in Florence, Italy, is set to offer a glimpse into the "poetic" architecture that Michelangelo created during his famed career.

The show is scheduled to open Dec. 16 at Florence's Casa Buonarroti, featuring original architectural sketches from the Italian Renaissance artist that represent Michelangelo's "poetic" style, said the news agency ANSA.

"Michelangelo writes poetry in his architecture," said the show's curator, Howard Burns. "One often comes across verses by the master right next to the architectural drawings, expressing the emotion he felt after inventing such harmonious forms."

There is a much more detailed article from the International Herald Tribune here. The Casa Buonarroti is one of the few museums I have yet to visit and this exhibit sounds like a great reason to go.
