Crucifix by Michelangelo Inspires Renaissance Scholar Angelo Boccardelli to Formulate the Language of Signs and Forms

"Michelangelo Code" Hidden in One of Michelangelo's Sculptures


Contact: Anna Maria De Medici, 212-780-7526


NEW YORK, Mar. 13 /Christian Newswire/ -- After 25 years of research, an Italian scholar has cracked the secret code to Michelangelo's work. Dr. Angelo Boccardelli will announce his discovery of "The Michelangelo Code" at a series of conferences, open to the press, March 14, 15 and 16 in New York.


This influential Italian artist, diplomat and scholar of renaissance art will demonstrate, with historic documents and a slide presentation, a new way to read the work of Michelangelo Buonarroti, one of the greatest renaissance artists.


"The Da Vinci code has awakened interest in finding the inner meaning, the secret information, other messages hidden in works of art. The result of my research, will shed light and will open doors to a new way to understand Michelangelo and any other great master," says Dr. Boccardelli, the President of Fondazione Giacomo Maria Ugolini-Ambasciatore, an international free university devoted to the study of the mystery of man and the development of human potential.


Boccardelli's foundation is based in the Republic of San Marino, and in Monteporzio Catone, just 20 minutes outside Rome, at Villa Vecchia www.villavecchia.it.


Villa Vecchia, a patrician villa, dates to before 1575 when the Farnese Family purchased it and commissioned Vignola, one of the greatest Italian architects of 16th century Mannerism, to restore it. Once a retreat of Pope Gregorious XIII and the Farnese, it is now a four-star, 95-room hotel where international art lovers spend quality time attending seminars led by top Italian experts.


Boccardelli says that Villa Vecchia schedules seminars on Michelangelo and the Italian Renaissance.  "Our guests, who are art enthusiasts, appreciate our programs that are tailored both for discerning art lovers and for artists who may have yet to discover their own talents. We offer great programs, great food, great fun at surprisingly affordable price".
