Raffaelo: Il Principe delle Arti
- 18 April, Wednesday, 7:30PM NEW, ONCE
The first ever film adaptation of Raphael Sanzio and his art (1483-1520).
From the producers of Florence and the Uffizi Gallery 3D and St Peter’s and the Papal Basilicas of Rome 3D.
Includes “three expert art historians; camera tours of his most famous – and seldom seen – paintings, frescoes and tapestries; excellent contextual analysis of key works; and a few stilted mute historical reenactments”
“the art works do the talking and director Luca Viotto takes us on a thrilling Raphael tour. We visit twenty locations including two exclusives: The Vatican Logge and Cardinal Bibbiena’s apartment in the Apostolic Palace.”
We also view in detail that would not even be possible to tourists in situ, some 70 works, including the celebrated The Marriage of the Virgin, the Madonna del Cardellino (Goldfinch), the School of Athens (where Plato looks a lot like Leonardo); the breathtaking Sistine Madonna, The Sistine Tapestries and the Transfiguration.
