THE INTELLECTUAL BASIS OF THE RENAISSANCE WAS ITS OWN INVENTED VERSION OF HUMANISM, DERIVED FROM THE CONCEPT OF ROMAN HUMANITAS AND THE REDISCOVERY OF CLASSICAL GREEK PHILOSOPHY, SUCH AS THAT OF PROTAGORAS, WHO SAID THAT "MAN IS THE MEASURE OF ALL THINGS." THE RENAISSANCE BEGAN IN FLORENCE, IN THE 14TH CENTURY, AND RAPIDLY, UNDER PATRONAGE OF DE MEDICI FLOURISHED AND SPREAD TO NEIGHBOURING STATES. SUCH AS MILAN.
The perfection of the human body is something that has kept artists busy for as long as we can remember. Michelangelo’s David, a Renaissance master piece is the perfect example. But so is Francesco della Vedova. This 21 years old personal trainer comes from Milan, one of the key cities in that ancient Renaissance, and seems to be the perfect embodiment of what Renaissance is all about. His special diet stand guarantee for his perfect body. And so does his 6 days a week gym routine. I sometimes wonder what is more difficult, sculpting yourself by working out and diets or creating a David from a block of marble.
As mentioned before, Francesco is a personal trainer but he does more than that. It probably doesn’t come as a surprise he’s a much sought after model which allows him to travel all over Europe. Hence he arrived in the Netherlands where he scheduled a shoot with Malemodel photographer Gert Kist. And of course, Gert immortalized him in his very special style that we have come to know so well over the years. 100% yumminess, that also comes with a making off video which you can see on Malemodel.nl. The photos here already show the diversity Francesco is capabale of adapting to. Underwear, fetish and – yes – nudes. No wonder he has such a great following on his Instagram account. –BM-
