May 15, 2020 | 11:00am PST
On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Raffaello Sanzio’s death, while we wait for cultural destinations to reopen and to be able to see works of art live again, the network of Italian Cultural Institutes (IIC) in the US and Canada will celebrate the Master through several online multimedia initiatives, starting May 15th with Prof. Marzia Faietti, distinguished historian of Italian art, available via Zoom webinar to all members and friends of the IICs in North America.
Prof. Marzia Faietti will present one of Raphael’s most intriguing drawings, known as Raphael’s Dream, a mysterious composition portraying a charming female figure seated at a parapet, two angels, and architectural fragments, and will unravel the drawing’s mystery and explain how this unique work of art enhances our appreciation for Raphael’s monumental artistic achievements.
The presentation will be moderated by Prof. Emanuele Lugli, Stanford University.
Marzia Faietti, Adjunct Professor, Department of the Arts, University of Bologna, was the Director of Art History at the Uffizi Galleries in Florence from 2004 through 2018, where she coordinated the Cabinet of Drawings and Prints. Professor Faietti is co-curator of the major exhibition Raphael 1520-1483 at Rome’s Scuderie del Quirinale and she has curated many exhibitions in Italy and abroad, including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Getty Museum.
