Benvenuto Cellini (1500–1571) was an Italian goldsmith, sculptor, draftsman, soldier, musician, and artist who also wrote a famous autobiography and poetry. Even if married, Cellini was officially accused or charged with the crime of sodomy once with a woman and at least three times with men, illustrating his bisexual tendencies. He died in Florence and was buried with great pomp in the church of the Santissima Annunziata (Piazza SS Annunziata, 50122 Firenze).
