Place : Toulouse (31).

Description : Shortly after the triumphal visit of Charles Quint, in 1536, the Pope Paul III charges Michel Ange with arranging Capitole. It is a question to give again a suitable aspect in Rome which had been ransacked 9 years earlier per Charles Quint itself.
Michel Ange carries out this monumental place the purpose of which was principal to express a rupture with old Rome of the Emperors and an opening on the new Rome : that of the Popes.
