4th October: Giant Michelangelo statues

Tomorrow morning I’m being taken to the Studi d’Arte Cave Michelangelo as it’s open to the public from 8am till 1pm tomorrow as apparently I haven’t been on enough cultural misadventures recently.

The workshop in Carrara, is for young artists to study sculpture using the white marble mined nearby. On the open morning we’ll get a chance to look around the workshop and admire the art of some new artists as well as established names Maurizio Cattelan, Adel Abdessemed and Jan Fabre. We’ll also have a chance to look at the much debated replica of ‘David’ covered in tattoos.  

Here’s to hoping that I manage not to break anything…
