Michelangelo's final work, the Rondanini Pietà. Rescuing the human form.
2nd May 2020.
This is an in-depth look into Michelangelo’s last work the Rondanini Pietà. The sculpture has special properties in that when it is viewed from varying angles new meanings and forms appear. It also contains a never before seen alignment, which triumphantly turns the theme of the Sculpture from Pietà or Pity, the terrible moment the Virgin holds her broken, dead son in her arms, into joy and renewal, as the risen Christ is seen above in the clouds. Michelangelo died on the 18th February 1564; he was still working on this sculpture right up until a few days before his death. It is always described as being ‘unfinished’, but perhaps a better term for it would be ‘always beginning’.
This was filmed in Milan in July 2019.
