Michelangelo’s “Other”

leave a comment »

Just got a tweak from another source reinforcing my PRing of Michelangelo’s Moses in a quiet church overlooking the Colosseum minutes off Rome’s Via Nazionale. This marble classic touted as  the more-renowned David’s “twin” sits in a nook in St. Pietro in Viniculi — St. Peter in Chains because that’s where the chains that supposedly bound St. Peter are housed. You don’t have to shell out an exorbitant  amount of euros to stand in line in Florence to get ushered by an outsized David.  I’ve been telling folks about this for years but get incredulous looks and questions like, “How can such a supposedly magnificent piece like that  be hidden in a little church that’s not on the tour-bus route?”
