“Michelangelo. Il Cuore e la Pietra”
The second film (“Michelangelo, the Heart and the Stone”) was produced by Italian broadcaster Sky, and features Rutger Hauer in the title role. the Italian actor Giancarlo Giannini – himself a master – provides the voice. The film looks at the writings and poetry of Michelangelo.
