Cecchino dei Bracci, a student of Michelangelo, died at age 16. His uncle, Luigi del Riccio, distraught at the death of the youth, prevailed on Michelangelo to write 40 verses as a tribute. He also designed the sepulture. He is buried inside the Chiesa di Santa Maria di Aracoeli (Scala dell'Arce Capitolina, 00186 Roma).
