The two-month exhibition has been curated by Claudio Strinati, a renowned art historian and critic in Italy. He said in a presentation video that the exhibition featuring oil paintings, frescoes, sculptures and digital reproductions illustrates the classical artistic principles established by the Renaissance master.

Lucia Pasqualini, Consul General of Italy in Guangzhou, said that 2020 marked the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death, but many commemorative events were canceled due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

She said the exhibition marks a new start, as well as further cultural exchanges between Italy and China.
