Michelangelo was born some time back on March 06, 1475 at Caprese near Arezzo, Tuscany. The city Tuscany is a region in central Italy spreading over an area of about 27,000 square kilometres and an inhabitant of about 3.8 million inhabitants with regional capital is Florence. If you look back his family history you will find his family had remained associated with the bankers at Florence.
