From the creators of Florence and The Uffizi Gallery 3D and The vatican Museums 3D
Beauty comes to life in a crescendo of brushwork - displaying the enduring genius of one of the most talented artists the world has ever known!
Following the success of Florence and the Uffizi Gallery 3D and St Peter's and the Papal Basilicas of Rome 3D, in collaboration with the Vatican Museums and Magnitudo Film, Sky and Nexo Digital present “Raphael – the Lord of the Arts – in 3D”, the first ever film adaptation of Raphael Sanzio and his art (1483-1520).
The historical reconstructions are inspired by 18th Century paintings depicting fragments of Raphael’s life. Lending his face to Raphael Sanzio for these historical reconstructions is actor and director Flavio Parenti (To Rome With Love, Io sono l’amore, Un Matrimonio). La Fornarina, the woman the artist loved, is played by Angela Curri (La mafia uccide solo d’estate), with Enrico Lo Verso as Giovanni Santi and Marco Cocci as Pietro Bembo.
Raphael – the Lord of the Arts is the first film adaptation of the life and work of one of the most famous artists in the world, Raphael Sanzio. Few figures in the history of art have lived a life so full of intensity and fascination. He died young, aged 37, and yet managed to leave an indelible mark on the artistic world. In a well-balanced dialogue between historical reconstruction and expert commentary, the film retraces the most significant moments of Raphael’s life. Set in 20 locations, two of which are major exclusives – the Vatican Logge and Cardinal Bibbiena’s apartment in the Apostolic Palace – the film explores more than 30 works of art, including the most famous and most representative of Raphael’s work. Beauty comes to life through the brushwork and enduring genius of one of the most talented artists the world has ever known.
