ROME - The Scuderie del Quirinale and the Uffizi Galleries present, in collaboration with the Borghese Gallery, the Vatican Museums and the Archaeological Park of the Colosseum, the RAFFAELLO exhibition , curated by Marzia Faietti and Matteo Lafranconi with the contribution of Vincenzo Farinella and Francesco Paolo Di Teodoro.

On 6 April 1520, Raffaello Sanzio, the greatest Renaissance painter, died in Rome at the age of thirty-seven. The city seems to stop in emotion and regret, while the news of the disappearance spreads with incredible rapidity in all European courts. Not only an unprecedented artistic journey was interrupted, but also the ambitious graphic reconstruction project of ancient Rome, commissioned by the pontiff, who would redeem after centuries of oblivion and ruin the greatness and nobility of the capital of the Cesari, also affirming a new idea of ​​protection. Buried according to his last wishes in the Pantheon, a symbol of continuity between different traditions of worship, perhaps the most emblematic example of classical architecture, Raphael immediately becomes the subject of a process of divinization, never truly interrupted,

Five hundred years later, this exhibition tells its story and at the same time that of all the Western figurative culture that considered it an essential model. The exhibition, articulated according to an original idea, proposes a path that traces backwards the creative adventure of Raphael, from Rome to Florence, from Florence to Umbria, up to his native Urbino. A pressing flash-back that allows you to rethink the biographical path starting from its maximum creative expansion in the years of Leo X. Going back through Raphael's lifetime from masterpiece to masterpiece, the visitor will be able to trace in filigree the prefiguration of that classical language that only in Rome, deeply assimilated the lesson of the ancient, it developed with a fullness that is unprecedented in the history of art. Thanks to an exceptional number of masterpieces from the major Italian and European collections, the exhibition organized by the Scuderie del Quirinale together with the Uffizi Galleries, constitutes an unparalleled opportunity to closely observe the inventions of the Urbinate. His short, luminous journey has forever changed the history of the arts and taste: Raffaello lives again in the exhibition rooms which celebrates him as a universal genius.
