Michelangelo's fightMichelangelo had a temper of the quickest. He used to quarrel and fight in season and out of season. A young sculptor named Torrigiani was terribly jealous of Michelangelo's ability. On his part, there was jealousy and, on Michelangelo's part, there was anger. So jealousy and anger fought together.
In the fight, Torrigiani struck Michelangelo mercilessly and broke his nose. As a result, Torrigiani was compelled to flee the city. Michelangelo's nose remained disfigured for the rest of his life.
