The restoration of the Sistine Chapel - a singular experience that lasted fourteen years. Michelangelo and I is the story of the restoration, told by the restorer himself; from the first small cleaning test, to the difficult decisions when cleaning Adam's Eye or the Head of God. In this book, Gianluigi Colalucci reveals not only the burden he felt under the weight of the enormous responsibility of his task, but also the fun involved behind the scenes. He reveals the stories that animated this historic restoration in which many people of the highest level - artists, scholars, writers, actors, musicians and even Her Majesty the Queen of England - visited him high up on the scaffolding during his work.
