The major exhibition to mark the anniversary of Raphael's death in 1520 is due to re-open on the 2nd June in coincidence with Italy's national Festival of the Republic.
The exhibition in the Scuderie del Quirinale (Quirinale Palace Stables Museum) is the biggest single tribute ever paid to “the Divine Painter”, asRaphael Sanzio was called, with 120 works by the artist, coming from different museums and galleries, including the Uffizi (Florence), the Louvre (Paris), the National Gallery (London), the Ashmolean Museum (Oxford) and Queen Elizabeth II's private collection.
The exhibition opened on the 5th March 2020, but was forced to close after only four days due to the coronavirus clampdown. Visitors will be obliged to observe safety regulations, such as the limitation of numbers (pre-booking online), temperature measurements at the entrance and masks for visitors and staff.
All being well, the long-awaited “RAFFAELLO 1520-1483” exhibition (the dates of his birth and his death have been reversed for better effect) will run until the 30th August 2020 with extended opening hours – every day from 9 am to 10 pm.
