The "Mosè di Michelangelo"

"Mosè di Michelangelo" came back to the light, and is not just a way of saying.

This fascinating sculpture of Michelangelo, situated on the tomb of Giulio II in Rome, after the refurbishment is back to shine.

The artist have done it using a particular technique, he have used lead to polish only the part of the statue that will be kissed by the sun and have made opaque the parts that need to move to the background.

With this technique the statue is like a painting, the left arm reflects the light in an mazing way.
