Book Review Posted: Wandering Educators
Jessie from Wandering Educators reviewed A Journey into Michelangelo's Rome today:
"One word: Michelangelo. You're already thinking, aren't you, about all of his famous works of art? I think of his great, great impact on the world, and just stand in awe of his talent. I recently read a new book about Michelangelo, by our very own Italy Editor, Angela Nickerson. It is called A Journey into Michelangelo's Rome, and is just an incredible read. Starting in Florence, it traces Michelangelo's history (and art) throughout his life. Fantastic detail, historically accurate research, and stunning photos make this book an entrancing read. I feel that I have learned so much about Michelangelo the man, as well as his art and the context in which he lived. More importantly, it provides a great travel guide to Rome via art and history. Heading to Rome? Don't go without this book. We won't - it has changed the way we view Rome!"
In addition, we did a short interview about the book and writing it. Enjoy!
