Today the week of festivities kicks off on Wandalust.com where Karen reviews A Journey into Michelangelo's Rome.
"A Journey into Michelangelo's Rome works well on many different levels. For me it was an introduction to the life and works of Michelangelo as I don't know much about arthistory. It was interesting to read about the changing tastes in art during Michelangelo's life time, for example how the classical nude changed from portraying the purity of soul and morality to being perceived as something to corrupt the mind and requiring the addition of strategically placed draping."
And Karen and I will do a live chat on Europe a la Carte on Wednesday at 20:00 British Summer Time (one hour in advance of GMT).
