Images, Music, Colour - the Museo della Permanente’s Homage to Raphael
#Art

A tale told with images, sounds and music that reconstructs the pictorial and historic universe of Raphael, celebrating the 500th anniversary of his death. Created on the basis of authoritative scientific contribution, curated by Italian art historian Vincenzo Farinella, Raffaello 2020 retraces the life, the art and the historical context in which the master of Urbino lived, along with his illustrious patrons. And while, in the Hologram Theatre, visitors can meet the artist in person, the Immersive Hall, the heart of a multimedia sensorial itinerary, engages spectators in an original work illustrating the story of Raphael, along with the works and the places involved in his work with animation, scenery, sounds and vivid colours. His origins, apprenticeship, his early independent works, his successes and his ultimate consecration, all periods intensely linked to four fundamental locations of the artist’s development - Urbino, Perugia, Florence and Rome - lead us along a road that ends at the Pantheon in Rome, which houses the artist’s tomb. Finally, the exhibition also offers the Virtual Reality Hall and the Augmented Reality Hall. In the first, the walls are totally dedicated to the icon of the angel in the works of Raphael, with careful attention paid to the two angels of the Madonna Sistina. While the Augmented Reality Hall offers a look at the Roman studio of Raphael, a patiently reconstructed scenic installation.
