    Michelangelo’s Dome – St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican (HDR Vertorama) This is the story of a genius and a torn man. Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was the superstar of his time. A man who earned more money than most people, unlike other artists at his time who became famous only after their death. Michelangelo was the first western artist whose biography was published while he was still alive. Being a gifted painter, sculptor, architect, poet, and engineer, his talents were only rivaled by fellow Italian Leonardo da Vinci. But all of that did not make him a happy man. He chose to lead a poor live, giving most of his money to his relatives. It is believed that he was homosexual, something that was unspeakable at that time. Michelangelo was often arrogant with others and constantly dissatisfied with himself. In 1546, Michelangelo was appointed architect of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, and designed its dome starting off from where some of the best architects of that time left. This was his last project. This place is extraordinary and an absolute must-see when you are in the area. I have been there twice now and I have been fascinated by the size and the beauty. The shot is an HDR vertorama that shows an angle of about 160°.
