A continual inspiration
Michelangelo left behind a wealth of handwritten material as well as his works of art. The symbol in the Foundation’s logo is taken from one of his signatures, on a sheet called ‘the David sheet’, currently held in the Louvre.
Next to two drawings, ‘Michelangniolo’ can be seen in small, elegant calligraphy. Michelangelo signed his name in its old Tuscan version, reflecting his strong attachment to his Florentine homeland.
Bold and substantial, our ‘M’ represents the remarkable figure of Michelangelo, and how his commitment to beauty and mastery serve as a continual inspiration for our work.
Our colour palette is built on the fundamental colours of red, representing the material world of craftsmanship, and blue, representing the realms of creativity and imagination. These two aspects are intentionally brought together, reflecting our firm belief that by merging them we open a space for the highest human potential and excellence to emerge.
