A portrait of one of the greatest Renaissance artists, as well as one of the most influential for the subsequent history of modern art. Widely regarded and celebrated as a child prodigy by both his peers and generations to follow.

From the makers of Florence and the Uffizi Gallery 3D and St Peter’s and the Papal Basilicas of Rome 3D, Raphael – the Lord of the Arts, is the first ever film adaptation of Renaissance master Raphael Sanzio and his art. This visually stunning new film combines indepth explorations of Raphael’s astonishing art, and immersive historical reconstructions, inspired
by 18th Century paintings depicting fragments of Raphael’s life.

Few figures in the history of art have lived a life so full of intensity and fascination quite like Raphael Sanzio. He died aged just 37 and yet managed to leave an indelible mark on art. In a well-balanced dialogue between historical reconstructions and artistic commentary, the film retraces the most significant moments of Raphael’s life.

Expert contributions delivered with feeling by great art historians Antonio Paolucci, Vincenzo Farinella and Antonio Natali, enrich the story of the life and work of the artist. The film is set in 20 locations, two of which are major exclusives, the Vatican Logge and Cardinal Bibbiena’s
apartment in the Apostolic Palace, and shows over 30 works of art, among the most famous and most representative of Raphael’s entire work.

2017 | IT | 90 min | Dir. Luca Viotto | In Italian with English subtitles
