Spending a couple of hours in the company of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci is my idea of heaven.
And I’d pay more than a few shekels to watch Machiavelli (yes, that one, before “The Prince”) manipulating both of those artists and his boss Piero Soderini, head of the Republic of Florence.
What a quartet! Two artists who have nothing good to say about each other, the man who understood political power better than anyone and the ruler of Florence. These are the elements of a fascinating theatrical pas de quatre.
