Orafo, scultore e scrittore d'arte, di natura irrequieta e violenta, ebbe una vita avventurosa, segnata da contrasti, passioni, delitti, per i quali fu spesso costretto all'esilio o alla fuga. Ma come tutti i grandi talenti ci ha lasciato opere sublimi: il Perseo a Firenze; Apollo e Giacinta e il Narciso al Museo del Bargello; il Crocefisso all'Escorial; la Ninfa di Fontainebleu conservata al Louvre. La sua autobiografia è scritta in linguaggio schietto e colloquiale, con al centro il tema della realizzazione delle proprie ambizioni e della sua genialità, dove convivono splendori e miserie, personaggi raffinati e crudeli. Da subito questo scritto incontrò il parere favorevole del pubblico e divenne un caso di grande successo.

He was the greatest of the craftsmen during the height of the Renaissance period. Kings and popes vied with each other in trying to secure his services. His claims to be the king of craftsmen were admitted by his fellow-­artificers, and at the zenith of his career he had no rivals. Trophies of his skill and artistic genius remain to confirm the verdict of his own time. His great bronze statue of Perseus in Florence; the Nymph of Fontainebleau, now in the Louvre; his golden salt-­cellar, made for Francis I., and . . .
