One of the most prestigious exhibitions of the Milan summer, “Body and Soul, from Donatello to Michelangelo”, is on view at the Castello Sforzesco in Milan from July 21st to October 24th, 2021.

Set up in collaboration with the Louvre Museum, the exhibition aims to highlight the main themes that run through Italian art in the second half of the fifteenth century, up to its apogee in the Renaissance. The exhibition makes it possible to see the sculpture and other arts (painting, drawings, art objects) interacting with the work of one of the greatest creators of world art history, Michelangelo.
Thus it is possible to see how the “motions of the soul” take shape in the works in marble, bronze and terracotta, taking the novelties of the Renaissance to the highest peaks.

The exhibition presents 120 works from Italian and international museums and is a sixty-year excursion, from 1453 to 1520, in the Italian sculptural productions of Donatello, Andrea della Robbia, Antonio del Pollaiolo, Francesco di Giorgio Martini, Amadeo. Verrocchio, Leonardo and Gianfrancesco Rustici, and Michelangelo.

The exhibition “The Body and the Soul, from Donatello to Michelangelo” is curated by Marc Bormand (Paris, Louvre Museum, curator of the sculpture department), Beatrice Paolozzi Strozzi (Florence, former director of the Bargello Museum), Francesca Tasso (Milan, Curator in charge of the Artistic Collections of the Castello Sforzesco)
