A collection of writings and drawings by Renaissance great Michelangelo is now available on iPad thanks to a new app put together by the Vatican Library, Italian marketing firm Froggy and the National Geographic Channel.

The digital version of Vatican Latin Codex 3211, made up of 111 parchments (dating from 1534 to 1563), contains letters, essays, poems and sketches.

Among other things, the codex has the original versions of many poems later gathered into the painter and sculptor’s famed verse collection, the Canzoniere.

The compositions were written on single sheets of paper which were later compiled into a sort of note-book.

The app can be downloaded at the following link: http://itunes.apple.com/it/app/michelangelo/id488648879?mt=8.
