Publisher's Summary

As a colossal statue takes shape in Renaissance Florence, the lives of a master sculptor and a struggling painter become stunningly intertwined. 

Florence, 1500. Fresco painter Jacopo Torni longs to make his mark in the world. But while his peers enjoy prestigious commissions, his meager painting jobs are all earmarked to pay down gambling debts.  

When Jacopo hears of a competition to create Florence's greatest sculpture, he pins all his hopes on a collaboration with his boyhood companion, Michelangelo Buonarroti. But will the frustrated artist ever emerge from the shadow of his singularly gifted friend? 

From the author of The Painter's Apprentice and The Gondola Maker comes a gorgeously crafted, immersive tale of Renaissance Italy.  

Based on a true story.

A Marvelous Read/Listen for the Love of a Giant

if you love the Art and the marvelous history behind it, this is another great story from the research of Laura Morrelli. Her words take you back to the time when Florence was influx between the Medici and Rome, when the guilds were in charge and debtors were the various artists who built the marvels that make our hearts and eyes full with overwhelming passion. The story of Lindico deals with in the shadows of his great friend, Michaelangelo while he works on the Giant marble statue of David that Lindico brought him home to do, will inspire and cause you to get wrapped up in another time wanting to learn more and desiring to see those great works of art once more.
