In a concealed room beneath the New Sacristy of the San Lorenzo Basilica in Florence, Italy, the great Italian sculptor and architect Michelangelo once went into hiding. He was fifty five at that time.

Michelangelo had enjoyed the patronage of the Medici family, which lorded over Florence in the early 16th century, for much of his life. But relations turned sour when the Medici were thrown out of power and Michelangelo went to the aid of his beloved city which ousted the Medici in 1527. The republic, however, was short-lived. The Medici were restored to power in 1530, and at once the young Alessandro Medici, who became the first Duke of Florence, began baying for Michelangelo’s blood for betraying the family.
