The series of webinars organized by the network of Italian Cultural Institutes of the United States and Canada on the occasion of the Raffaello 500 celebrations continues with a conversation on the technique and materials used by Raphael in his frescoes, in the light of the scientific investigations conducted during recent restorations.
In particular, the webinar will focus on Raphael's work in the Loggia of Cupid and Psyche at Villa Farnesina in Rome, on the wave of a digital project developed by Antonio Sgamellotti and Virginia Lapenta, in cooperation with the Visual Computing Lab ISTI-CNR. The digital results of the project have recently been made available online, providing a surprisingly close look at the frescoes created by Raphael and his laboratory on the domed ceiling in the Loggia.
Participating in this Zoom webinar series #Raffaello500 Marco Leona, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Antonio Sgamellotti, Accademia dei Lincei, and Virginia Lapenta, Chief Curator of Villa Farnesina.
