From Sansepolcro, but also from Anghiari, you can reach the village of Caprese where the illustrious Michelangelo was born, on 6 March 1475, and which was subsequently renamed Caprese Michelangelo in his honour. Going up from the houses to the 14th-century Castello, reconstructed in the 20th century, you can visit the Casa del Podestà. The Podestà was the office that Michelangelo’s father, Leonardo, held in the village when he was born. The Museum is housed in this building and you will find plaster reproductions of his statues and photos of other works by this superlative artist
