About the exhibition
Milan celebrates the 500th anniversary of the death of painter Raffaello Sanzio – mainly known as Raphael – with an immersive multimedia installation hosted in the exhibition spaces of Palazzo della Permanente. Spread over 5 different halls, the exhibition covers the display area over 360 degrees, spanning from the floor to the walls and the ceiling of each room to create an immersive tale of Raphael’s life and masterpieces, depicting his places of his birth, as well as the key locations of his growth and artistic evolution.
Into more details
The entire exhibition – lasting around 75 minutes – brings back to life the social, historical and artistic context Raffaello Sanzio lived in thanks to the cutting-edge technology of video-mapping which also recreates the artist’s masterpieces through animations, scene design, sound and colour. The exhibition serves as a multimedia journey into Raffaello’s world, including his projects, works and personal life, starting from his birth in Urbino in 1483 up to his death at a young age in 1520 at the Pope’s service in Rome.
