Master Italian sculptor, goldsmith, and writer, Benvenuto Cellini is best remembered for his magnificent autobiography. In this work which was actually begun in 1558 but not actually published until 1730, Cellini beautifully chronicles his own flamboyant times. He tells of his adventures in Italy and France, his relations with popes and kings and with fellow artists. From Florence and Pisa to Siena and Rome, Cellini portrays a tumultuous period-the age of Galileo, Michelangelo and the Medicis-with an artist's eye for detail, and a curmudgeon's propensity for criticism. Cellini, according to his autobiographical account, seems to have lived a very full and active life, and his account of his exploits, though grandiloquent and somewhat suspect, are always entertaining. Renaissance historians such as Burkhardt were strongly influenced by this work, seeing it as confirmation that the key to the period is the emergence of modern individualism.… (mere)

Cellini’s lasting fame is due more to his record of his own life than it is to his work as an artist. First printed in Italy in 1728, Cellini’s autobiography was translated into English (1771), German (1796), and French (1822) and, launched on the tide of the Romantic movement, gained immediate popularity. Dictated to a workshop assistant, it is composed in colloquial language with no literary artifice and gives a firsthand account of the writer’s experience in the Rome of Clement VII, the France of Francis I, and the Florence of Cosimo de’ Medici. Despite its manifest exaggerations and its often boastful tone, it is a human document of surprising frankness and incomparable authenticity, and thanks to it Cellini’s character is more intimately known than that of any other figure of his time.

Orfebre, escultor y grabador, artífice de obras como el magnífico Perseo que puede contemplarse en la plaza de la Signoria de Florencia o el célebre y primoroso "salero de Francisco I" hoy en Viena, Benvenuto Cellini (1500-1571) fue una figura destacada en una época de titanes: aquel Renacimiento italiano tan espléndido y suntuoso como primario y feroz, que poblaron personalidades como Miguel Ángel y Rafael, papas soberbios y familias legendarias como los Médicis. Hombre de carácter decidido y aventurero, pendenciero e irascible, dejó en su apasionante "Vida" un insuperable y vivo retrato de primera mano de un temperamento excepcional en una época excepcional, el Cinquecento, en la que el pleno Renacimiento fue dando paso a una Europa que se adentraba en el Barroco y la Contrarreforma. Episodios memorables como el de los espíritus del Coliseo o la narración del saco de Roma, sus prisiones en el castillo de Sant'Angelo, las peripecias por Francia bajo la protección de Francisco I o la desesperada fundición del "Perseo", hacen de esta autobiografía un libro inolvidable y un inmejorable compañero de viaje para todo aquel que quiera evocar siglos más tarde sus andanzas a caballo entre Roma y Florencia.

A more or less linear, tale-by-tale recounting of Cellini's life.

Look, you will either love this book because it gives a glimpse into life in the late Italian Renaissance, through the eyes of an extremely colorful character whose personality takes center stage, or you will dislike it for being repetitive, one-sided, and possibly offensive to modern sensibilities.

The typical story in this memoir involves someone becoming jealous of Cellini's immense talents, and using their influence to turn powerful people (multiple Popes, a handful of different Cardinals, the King of France, etc.) against him. Usually, Cellini's innate morality will, by the grace of God, prove him innocent. Occasionally, he will be thrown in prison, flee the city, or murder his enemy in cold blood. According to the man himself, everyone is out to get him, and only his virtue, bravery, and sheer genius keep him going. In no case will Cellini admit to a fault, or stop to wonder why this kind of thing seems to happen to him so often.

Treating him as a character in a story, I found Cellini's self-aggrandizement and lack of self-awareness funny, though in real life he'd probably be insufferable! ( )

This story of a man 500 years dead is burgeoning with life. Benvenuto Cellini is not so well known for his artistry today as Leonardo or Michaelangelo, but he was close to their echelon. It is primarily his autobiography that secured him lasting fame. He was a goldsmith in Florence and Rome, and a master of several related fields besides. The products of supreme artists in this period made a splash comparable to a blockbuster Hollywood movie or top-earning concert today, and Cellini pleased his audiences without fail.

It seems at that time it was nothing to settle one's differences by violence in the street, preferably in front of witnesses who could attest it had been a matter of honour. Benvenuto was not one to stand down from a confrontation with anyone, not even a pope or duke whose favour he enjoyed, if pride was on the line. Unfortunately he could not apply that solution to contractors, who could be as frustrating then as now to deal with, "like shouting at a collection of lame donkeys led by a blind boy", or to the many others who took advantage of him, often including his patrons.

Interspersed scenes like the necromancy at the colosseum cast a shade of doubt over some of the proceedings. I wish a stronger shade of doubt could be cast over his confessed treatment of women and underage girls. Otherwise the degree of detail with which he recalls a sequence of events, or the conversations he had and the places he went, is astounding. My edition's footnotes back up a enormous amount of it. There's not a chapter break to be seen and it reads like one single unrolling memory, life as story, suitably ending as if only pausing for breath. ( )

Your lordship tells me that the simple discourse of my Life contents you more in its first shape than were it polished and retouched by others - for then the truth of what I have written would show less clear; and I have taken great care to say nothing of things for which I should have had to fumble in my memory.
