FAQs

While visitors to the Vatican can only marvel at these frescoes only from afar, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition now offers the opportunity to observe these masterpieces close up, in the form of reproductions. The exhibition takes us up onto the scaffolding during restoration for a new perspective. After centuries of use, the paintings in the Chapel had become covered in such a thick layer of dust and soot, and as a result of this deterioration the brilliance of the original luminous colors had all but disappeared. It was not until the comprehensive restoration work carried out in the 1980s and 1990s that the true richness of color in the wall and ceiling frescoes could once more be observed. The exhibition illustrates the restoration and allows us to view the monumental paintings from a distance of only 4 meters, as opposed to the usual 20 meters. Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel thus brings an entirely new perspective to this work by Michelangelo and acts as a form of art in its own right.
