The exhibition at the Scuderie del Quirinale

Before the inauguration

Bookings from all over the world have arrived for the exhibition of the Quirinale Stables for the celebrations of the 500th anniversary of Raffaello Sanzio, entitled “Raffaello 1520-1483” .

A few hours after the anticipatory conference recently held in Rome – the real inauguration is announced for Tuesday, March 3, 2020.

The exhibition opens to the public on the following Thursday (March 5, 2020) – apparently there have been presales for sixty thousand tickets and this is indeed a significant figure.

Also notable is the fact that in Rome at the Scuderie del Quirinale are expected – guests of the President of the Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella- the highest institutional offices of the countries concerned in the works to the beautiful loan “Raffaello 1520-1483” .

So this exhibition that promises to be not only beautiful, but also historiographically interesting .

By avoiding confusion between the originals and the attributions -the editors will have a great deal to do to effectively signal the difference in the exhibition itinerary-

“Raffaello Sanzio 1520-1483” aims to bring together works of comparison and context for a total of two hundred and forty pieces .

Up and down, considering in a single account also codes and sculptures , artifacts of various kinds that will be on display .

Last but not least considering the guests of the Quirinale, “Raffaello Sanzio 1520-1483”, given the scale, is an opportunity to renew the elimination of interstate borders thanks to culture.

In the good example for posterity not to forget – as in one of the best known Hegelian dialectics – that we ourselves impose restrictions and borders and things.

And therefore we must also impose that our own creations, whether conceptual or physical, do not take over us, in short, to mark a point in favor of the common good valid for the future in the difference between human intelligence and that of machines and to continue in the tradition of good international relations at the basis of a result of peace and well-being .

The closing of the exhibition of the spring quarter of the Scuderie del Quirinale is scheduled for Monday 2 June , a public holiday for the Italian calendar and very crowded for the Eternal City, due to the much loved Republic Day.

From Inside The Staircase we can’t wait to see what will come out of it, the cards on the table, if we can say so, are excellent.

In fact, a committee for Raphael celebrations was established by the minister Dario Franceschini with the presidency of the art historian Antonio Paolucci and the care of the exhibition is entrusted to Marzia Faietti and Matteo Lanfranconi with the contribution of Vincenzo Farinella and Francesco Paolo Di Teodoro .

Then there is a scientific committee chaired by  Sylvia Ferino Pagden , in collaboration with Nicholas Penny , Barbara Jatta and Guido Cornini (of the Vatican Museums ), Dominique Cordellier ( Musée Louvre ), Achim Gnann , Alessandro Nova , Alessandro Viscogliosi , Mario Scalini .

Aside from the ” Leo X jolts “, internal to the issues on the exhibition, due to an uprising – on a recently restored portrait, an oil painting by Raphael -, for which discussions of irremovability are being alleged, it seems that the committee is doing a really important work on the artistic historiographic level.

The museums involved in the international loan for “Raffaello Sanzio 1520-1483” are the Louvre Museum and the Musée des Beaux-Arts of Lille for France, the British Museum , the Royal Collection , the Victoria & Albert Museum , the Ashmolean Museum of Oxford, the National Gallery of London for Great Britain, the Prado Museum , the Museo Nacional de Artes decorativas (Madrid) for Spain, then for the United States the National Gallery of Art in Washington , the Met (New York ), and then again for the European quota, the Albertina in Vienna the largest for prints and drawings in the world and then of course
