The creation of Adam is a fresco located inside the fourth vault of the Sistine Chapel, in the Vatican museums in Rome, made by Michelangelo Buonarroti around 1511. The work depicts Adam lying on a grassy ground, and on the other side God, accompanied by a group of angels, who extends his hand towards him. The space in which the subjects are placed, as in most of Michelangelo's paintings, is poor and lacking in detail. The fulcrum of the scene is represented by the hands of the Lord and Adam who are about to touch each other, underlining a theme dear to Michelangelo as the contact between man and the Divine. It is said that the lack of contact between the fingers is a choice desired by the artist, to highlight the failure of mankind to achieve divine perfection. The illustration of a reddish mantle that accompanies the divine group has been the subject of numerous debates and multiple interpretations by the scholars of the time, corroborated by the fact that Michelangelo has the opportunity, during his years spent in Florence with the Medici family, to relate with philosophers of the school of Lorenzo the Magnificent, belonging to the neo-Platonic Renaissance school, whose thought placed the human brain as the fulcrum of human thought and actions. But also, from the fact that Buonarroti has a remarkable anatomical knowledge, developed during his stay in Florence, where he has acquired experience by dissecting corpses. The most accredited theory holds that, by superimposing the shape of the mantle, there is an incredible correspondence to the anatomical shape of a human brain. It is thought that Michelangelo wants to combine these images, to emphasize that the wisdom and ideas sought by man, are expressed in God. In support of this hypothesis we can see how Adam is depicted in adolescence, in profile and with little features defined, unlike the Divine, who is enhanced by a mature and wise portrait, with intense and energetic lines. The restoration of the Sistine Chapel fresco is concluded in 1994, giving the work its original brightness and highlighting the spatial effect of the painting.
