  • LOL, “La Dotta Mano” does not translate as “the main scholarly”…. but rather “The Learned Hand”. Do not trust online translation applications, they are rubbish…

    A stunning edition, but it’s much less expensive (& much more enriching!) to organise a Michelangelo tour around Italy, staying in the best hotels, getting a private guide & viewing his work for real.
