A virtual museum featuring Raphael's works from around the world. Musement launches Raphael500


Musement launches Raphael500, a virtual museum that brings together Raphael's works from around the world.

A virtual museum bringing together more than one hundred works by Raphael kept in thirty cities and eleven different countries: this is the idea launched by Musement to celebrate the five-hundredth anniversary of the Urbino artist’s death. Raphael500, this is the title of the virtual museum tour, intends to lead the public to discover the artist’s most famous masterpieces and lesser-known paintings, and is intended to be a tool that can take visitors on a journey, while staying at home, between Italy, Spain, France, England, Germany, Scotland, Hungary, Austria, Russia, the United States of America and Brazil, in more than thirty cities.

With a click on your device you can then be at the Vatican Museums, the Louvre, the Uffizi Galleries, the Prado Museum, the Villa Borghese or the Hermitage. In Italy there are eighteen cultural venues where Raphael’s works are housed: in Milan, Brescia, Bergamo, Modena, Bologna, Florence, Urbino, Città di Castello, Rome, Vatican City and Naples.

Raphael500 will also lead to Paris, Strasbourg, Chantilly, in the halls of the Louvre, the Condé Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, to admire works such as the Three Graces, St. Michael and the Dragon, St. George and the Dragon, the Madonna d’Orleans, the Belle Jardinière, the Madonna of the Blue Diadem, the Madonna of the Veil, the Portrait of Baldassarre Castiglione and many more.

We will then travel to the National Gallery in London and the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Prado in Madrid, the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest to the National Gallery in Edinburgh, the Gemäldegalerie and the Bode Museum in Berlin, and the Alte Pinakothek in Munich. And again, in the United States of America, Brazil and Russia, including Detroit, New York, Pasadena, Worcester, Baltimore, Boston, Washington, So Paulo and St. Petersburg.
