The Michelangelo project is funded by the European Commission in the framework of the Lifelong Learning Programme - Comenius Sub Programme.
The Michelangelo project is addressed to art teachers and students in European secondary schools who wish to acquire the knowledge of the most representative artists of the last 10 centuries in Europe, also including artists from countries whose artistic heritage is less known
The objective of the Michelangelo project is to promote the knowledge of the European fine arts. The focus is both on countries which are already well known for their artistic heritage and countries whose heritage is less known.
In order to reach this objective, the project develops and maintains an internet portal on European fine arts. The internet portal presents the most representative artists and artworks of the last 10 centuries from the European countries involved in the project. The portal, named the Michelangelo Portal, therefore provides the opportunity to art students, teachers, artists and European citizens to discover the beautiful European artistic heritage also beyond the most known artworks
