The power of the gaze: Raffaello

Just a stone’s throw from the Trevi Fountainthe National Gallery of Ancient Art, in the Palazzo Barberini, restored last year, with its 34 rooms, is a beautiful setting for exhibitions and events.

Today I suggest you, a very interesting exhibition: Raffaello meets Raffaello.
Two famous works of Raffaello, Portrait of a Young Man (the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum) and La Fornarina, are compared.

Works apparently so different, they hid a common thread: the gaze.

“The Renaissance in Rome: Michelangelo and Raffaello.”

Near Palazzo Sciarra, one of the four wonders of Rome, in the heart of Rome, overlooking Via del Corso, I recommend you to visit the Galleria Sciarra, a pedestrian gallery, richly decorated in Art Nouveau style.

A stone’s throw from the Trevi Fountain, at the Palazzo Sciarra, you can then spend your afternoon visiting the exhibition: The Renaissance in Rome. A token to Michelangelo and Raffaello.”

An exhibition that displays about 180 works, by one of the most fruitful for Art: The Renaissance.
Rome was the absolute center of artistic production and were also decorated masterpieces such as Castel Sant’Angelo and Trinità dei Monti

One must stop, if you want to learn more about the history of Italian art!
