This journal is Michelangelo's record of his life: from an eleven year old wrenched out of his secure life with his foster parents in stone-cutter haven, to his arrival the year before in Florence, to his young adulthood of thirty-two years. It details the things that shaped him, his friends, his family and how he felt as he sculpted the Rome Pieta and David. Of course, no one really knows.
