Sulle tracce di Raffaello nelle collezioni sabaude

Musei Reali, Torino

Intesa Sanpaolo is exhibition Partner for the Sulle tracce di Raffaello nelle collezioni sabaude exhibition at the Musei Reali, Turin, celebrating the fortunes of the Urbino-born artist 500 years after his death. The exhibition is made possible through a partnership with Intesa Sanpaolo, which has been actively involved in the restoration of the Madonna della Tenda canvas by “La Venaria Reale” Centre for Conservation and Restoration. This extraordinary process is part of Progetto Cultura, the Bank’s programme that underlines its commitment to protecting and promoting Italy’s artistic heritage, reaching one of its finest and highest expressions in the paintings of Raphael.

As well as the Madonna della Tenda, from 30th October 2020 to 11th April 2021 visitors will also be able to admire 32 more works inspired by Raphael’s oeuvre, be they copies or free interpretations of the maestro’s style, in a dedicated exhibition at Spazio Scoperte, part of the prestigious Galleria Sabauda.

Sulle tracce di Raffaello nelle collezioni sabaude highlights the art of Raphael, undisputed protagonist of the Italian Renaissance, through iconographic models from Piedmont and the collections of the House of Savoy, works inspired by his masterpieces between the early 1500s and the late 1800s.

The first part of the exhibition is given over to historic copies of the famous Madonna d’Orléans, an early work by Raphael, while the second section features the Madonna della Tenda itself (1530-1540). It was mistakenly attributed to the maestro in the early 19th century, but was probably painted by a leading Florentine workshop such as that of Andrea del Sarto, according to the latest research by “La Venaria Reale” Centre for Conservation and Restoration.

The exhibition ends with a display of further works by 16th-century artists who contended with Raphael and the ideal of the great beauty of art.
