Saul Zanolari is working on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
The project is to paint, in a digital way, a new version of it: new technique, different point of view.
The centre of the artwork will be the human being in his existential meaning and no longer in a religious context as it is in Michelangelo’s.
The intentions are not to restyle nor to complete his work.
It’s something brand new to describe the human condition using Michelangelo’s fresco as an inspiration.
The centre of these two panels is the human condition.
In The Creation of Eve it represents the female’s condition. The subjects are inverted, Adam became Eve and viceversa.
The female give birth to the male and the man is constantly bound to her.
The Sistine Chapel will be realized on scale 1:1 with the original using the digital fresco technique.
At this stage we are searching for the right place to realize it and for people interested in financing it.
