FC: Michelangelo Hero of the Renaissance | By: Blake Morgan

1: Here is the life long story of a man that changed the view of the Renaissance. This man had a name, it was Michelangelo.

2: Once upon a time there was a boy named Michelangelo who was born on March 6th, 1475, near Arezzo, in the "wonderland Caprese, Tuscany. When Michelangelo was a young boy he had two moms; his real mom and his "nurse". His mom's name was Francesca Neri and his dad Ludovicodi di Leonardo di Buonaratlo Simuni (long title... huh?). While Michelangelo was growing up his best friend was Francesco Grannacci.

3: Though his family life seems humble, his education style at school was completely different. | Michelangelo was part of a local school, his wonderful goal to pursue was drawing.

4: While Michelangelo was growing up, he saw many forms of the powerful Romans and Greeks that ruled before his day. These type of art forms from that time inspired Michelangelo to become a top-notch "thinker".

6: When Michelangelo had his first job, he worked for the powerful Medici Family. The family was almost like kings and queens that ruled the land. | Besides working for the powerful Medici Family, Michelangelo also worked a lot with a church and another powerful beings; Pope Julian II.

8: Did you know??? There is one problem for the Last Judgment painting, the reason is that one man purposely painted a serpent around a man's body.

9: Many paintings he done, like the Sistine Chapel, which covered the entire church roof! Another work that this artist painted was the Last Judgment, which tells about the ending of the world.

10: Mr. Michelangelo was a great man, for he had many great times in his life. He was known by many who lived during his time as a great Renaissance leader, though his leading competitor was Leonardo da Vinci (He was also a "thinker" like Michelangelo.)

11: Leonardo da Vinci

12: It seems that Michelangelo is always busy to many people during his days, as a matter of fact he always was. This remarkable painter, sculptor, architect, poet, and engineer was always busy. | Many works were done by Michelangelo, and two of his most famous works were the Battle of the Centaurs and the Statue of David. The Battle of the Centaurs represents a great "fight" between half-man-horse type creatures all on a stone. The Statue of David is a giant sculpture made out of marble that shows what David a person from the Bible would have looked like. | Many works were done by Michelangelo, and two of his most famous works were the Battle of the Centaurs and the Statue of David.

14: Michelangelo had a lot to do with the church, surprisingly his main religion followed the church; his religion was Catholic. Though Michelangelo had a lot to do with his religion he also had a since of hummanism. Hummanism is almost a belief that some people take as all humans being in perfect form.

17: Though Michelangelo believed in perfection, he had many (well...some) failures come across his life. One of the most biggest failures that held him back is not being "smart" enough for his jobs. The one failure however that consisted of all "thinkers" of the Renaissance was sorrow and mortification. The two flaws always were on the "thinkers" head, but Michelangelo was the "hero" that threw all he could into his works.

18: Michelangelo throughout his life was a great man, the most biggest accomplishment he given to the Renaissance period was a new "light" to his works. For example his works created a new way to the Church society, because before Michelangelo's days, his works would have been a problem.

19: To some Michelangelo was a hero, others he was a "thinker" but he will always be called the "Renaissance Man".

20: Did you know??? While Michelangelo was creating a work of art out of marble, he could not tell what he would make until the marble "spoke" to him (or gave him the idea). | Did you know??? Some people said that Michelangelo was mean to people while many others said he was not well to mind.

21: Did you know??? Michelangelo had a great "supernatural" idea named after him. It is based off of his idea of all humans being perfect.

23: Did you know??? When Michelangelo died in1564 in the town of Rome, his remains were "quietly" taken back to Florence, Italy. Did you know??? A man named Pope Julian II forced Michelangelo to paint without any reason.
