It sounds crazy, even to me, but I feel like I know Michelangelo -- as if across the centuries we have become friends in all the time I have spent with him. So I am always happy to be in his presence -- to study and admire yet again the indelible marks he left on Rome. Today: the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica.
