He was raised in Florence but had lived with a stonecutter and his wife during his mothers long illness, and also for some time after her death. This early introduction to the stonecutters trade fed Michelangelo's interest in sculpture and he studied at the school of Lorenzo de' Medici under the guidance of Bertoldo di Giovanni.Two of his first sculptures are 'The Madonna of the Stairs' and 'The Battle of the Centaurs'.
