Screening: Raffaello (2017)

Within two decades, Raphael rose to become the
Renaissance Prince of Painters and chief architect of St
Peter’s Basilica in Rome. Aged 25 and highly talented, he
entered the services of Pope Julius II, for whom he
painted masterworks such as The School of Athens or the
Sistine Madonna. They are proof of his ability to lend
poetic form to the ideas of his age with the highest artistic
quality. Within the historical setting of the time, the three
parts of this film take us to Urbino, Perugia, Florence and
Rome, paying a visit to the painterly and architectonic
oeuvre of the man they called, “the Divine” and who for
centuries embedded the ideal of the artist.
