The largest exhibition dedicated to the artist Raffaello ever organized in the entire world is now available online! The actual exhibition was inaugurated on March 5th at Rome’s Scuderie del Quirinale and for the few days that it was open to the public, it was hugely successful. This is one of the most anticipated events in the year 2020 and it is especially poignant since it celebrates the 500 year anniversary of the artist’s death.
The exhibition-event “Raffaello. 1520-1483” is available online on the Scuderie del Quirinale website and on social media. Via their official Youtube channel, visitors can also take a virtual tour. Amazing technology allows virtual visitors to study the various works on display in great detail.
The video story of the exhibition entitled “A walk in the exhibition” will be online beginning March 26 and will accompany visitors on a walk through the life, death, and works of Raphael Sanzio. Spectators will be able to walk among the various rooms of the museum and admire the exhibition.
The virtual tour will include a glimpse into Raffaello’s life which ended early and abruptly at the young age of 37 due to a respiratory illness. His remains and tomb are in the Pantheon in Rome.
Works on Display
Many of the works on display are on loan from internationally-acclaimed museums such as La Velata from the Uffizi Gallery, the Madonna Alba from the National Gallery in Washington, and the portrait of Baldassarre Castiglione. In total there are 200 works on display (120 by Raffaello) ranging from paintings, drawings, tapestries, and letters. Among the various masterpieces, you’ll also see the Santa Cecilia Altarpiece directly from the Pinacoteca di Bologna.
Many illustrious names have collaborated with the museum in order to ensure an unparalleled event: the Uffizi Gallery, the Borghese Gallery, the Vatican Museums and even the Archaeological Park of the Colosseum. Curated by Maria Faietti and Matteo Lafranconi, with an important contribution from Vincenzo Farinella and Francesco Paolo Di Teodoro.
The museum has done an excellent job of adapting the exhibition to a virtual platform and thanks to technology, the world can still appreciate Raffaello from the comfort of their own homes.
Originally, the exhibition was to end on June 2 and represented an incredible opportunity to be able to admire the works of one of the most famous painters in history.
