Abstract

Inspired by the preparatory cartoon for Raphael’s School of Athens, Giulio Manfredi wanted to pay homage to the master from Urbino with an installation in Raphael’s Cartoon Room, in the Veneranda Biblioteca Ambrosiana. Twenty-one jewels inspired by twenty-one characters, delicately shown to visitors by diaphanous figures who, as if descending from the wall, continue a dialogue of culture and beauty transcending space and time.
