Santo Spirito Sacristy and crucifix Crucifix by Michelangelo in the sacristy

Giuliano da Sangallo initially started the construction of the sacristy in 1489 in the form of an eight-sided figure and was finished by Antonio del Pollailo “Cronaca”. Inside of the sacristy you can admire the crucifix by Michelangelo as well as the full beauty of Michelangelo’s early work as a Renaissance sculptor. Michelangelo was a guest at Santo Spirito at the age of 17. During his stay he he was presented the opportunity to dissect corpses from the hospital of the monastery. This was the beginning of his anatomy studies. He was able to learn every detail about the human body, which is visible in his work.
