On April 6, 1520, Raffaello Sanzio, one of the geniuses of the Renaissance, passed away in Rome.

Five hundred years later, the force of one of the most creative artists of all time challenges the global crisis caused by Covid-19: as we await for cultural venues to open their doors again so we can view the art behind them in person, the network of Italian Cultural Institutes (IIC) in the US and Canada will celebrate the Master through online multimedia initiatives.  In the coming months, a live Zoom conference series featuring some of the most important experts on Raphael, live concerts, and Renaissance cooking webinars will be available to all members and friends of the IICs in North America. 

The series of webinars offered continues with a conversation on the execution technique and materials employed by Raphael on his fresco paintings, in comparison with the most up-to-date scientific investigations carried out during recent restorations.  Most notably, the conversation will focus on Raphael’s work in the Loggia of Cupid and Psyche at Villa Farnesina in Rome, on the heels of a digital project developed by Antonio Sgamellotti and Virginia Lapenta, in collaboration with the ISTI-CNR Visual Computing Lab. The digital results of the project have been recently made available online, providing an amazingly close look at the frescoes made by Raphael and his workshop on the Loggia domed ceiling.

Organized by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura New York in collaboration with IIC Chicago, Los Angeles, Montreal, San Francisco, Toronto and Washington, DC.
