The L’importuno di Michelangelo is an awesome little piece of history that is basically hiding in plain site. Located in Florence, Italy's Piazza della Signoria on the side of the Palazzo Vecchio, near the Uffizi Gallery, is a small carving that almost looks like a bit of graffiti. Little do most people know, that small piece of street art was actually carved into the wall by one of the most famous artists who ever lived, Michelangelo. If you aren't looking for it, the L’importuno di Michelangelo can go completely unnoticed by almost everyone in the square. As a matter of fact, while we were in the piazza searching for it, not one other tourist seemed to notice this beauty, even though there is a small spotlight that illuminates the piece of art. There are a bunch of different theories as to why Michelangelo created this little piece, one states that he carved the face on a dare. Other people say that the artist always got stuck talking to an insufferable bore, so he decided to carve his image into the stone in order to pass the time. Another story says that Michelangelo witnessed an execution in the square, and the face he carved is the man that was hung that day. Whatever the real story is, this semi-hidden little bucket list item is definitely something special and we are so glad that we were able to see it. go find it for yourself, you'll feel like you found a little treasure that none of the other tourists have even heard about! Enjoy!
