Abstract :
Explores Vasari and Vincenzo Borghini's pairing of Michelangelo and Dante as pre-eminent representatives of Tuscan achievement in the arts of disegno and poesia. This pairing was part of the central imagery of the ephemeral monuments erected in Florence in 1565 to celebrate the wedding of Francesco de' Medici and Joanna of Austria, designed by Borghini and executed by artists of the Accademia del Disegno. Drawings by these artists provide evidence that the Accademia had an extensive collection of casts taken from Michelangelo's sculpture, and possibly drawings by the artist, for students to consult. The Sistine ceiling was a particular source of inspiration. Demonstrates that Vasari's fascination with Michelangelo's sculptures and their influence on his work was more widespread than might have been assumed. Concludes by discussing the inspiration of Michelangelo and Dante for Vasari and Borghini in their collaborative scheme of the Last Judgment1 in the cupola of Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence. An appendix provides a concordance of the written sources for Borghini's celebration of Disegno at the Porta al Prato. ;
