Raphael's Exhibition in Rome - Private Tour with Hotel Pick Up And Drop Off
Raphael, the most charming and most handsome artist of the Renaissance, died in 1520. . . exactly five hundred years ago!
A special occasion to honour him with a monographic exhibition, which finds inspiration particularly in Raphael's fundamental Roman period, with over two hundred masterpieces.
Born in Urbino in 1483 and son of a popular painter (Giovanni Santi),he took his apprenticeship with Pietro Perugino in Umbria. He became a leading figure of Italian Renaissance during his stay in Florence and was part of the "Holy Trinity" along with two other artists named Leonardo and Michelangelo.
He then moved to Rome in 1508, at the age of 25,to start working under Pope Julius II’s patronage. On April 6, 1520, Raphael died prematurely at the age of 37.
The exhibition, which consecrates Raphael as an artist of incomparable and legendary greatness, outlines in rich detail his complex and articulated creative path through a vast corpus of works, exhibited together for the very first time.
