Opening this Saturday at the Accademia Carrara, Bergamo, is the unmissable exhibition “Raffaello e l’eco del mito” (Raphael and the Echo of the Myth).
In anticipation of the 500th anniversary celebrations of Raphael’s death in 2020, this major exhibition draws together over 60 works from collections in across Italy and all over the world, to trace the fortune of the artist from his formative years in Urbino to the legend he is known as today.
Featuring twenty original works by the master himself, including La Fornarina, these are situated alongside pieces by Signorelli, Pintoricchio, Perugino and Memling, to reconstruct the moment of heightened artistic productivity in which Raphael trained and developed.
The show continues the exploration of Raphael’s far-reaching influence, presenting a diverse range of works by modern and contemporary artists from Pablo Picasso and Francesco Vezzoli, to Vanessa Beecroft and Mariella Bettineschi.
