Conference Hall, Vatican Museums
The presentation of Christoph Luitpold Frommel’s volume “Raffaello. Le Stanze” (Raphael. The Rooms), edited by Jaca Book, could surely be hosted only in the Pope’s Museums, in the context of the cultural and scientific appointments of the Thursdays in the Museums programme. Special speakers will be present at this editorial event, to be held at 04.00 p.m. on Thursday 25 October: from Antonio Paolucci to Claudio Castelletti, from Claudio Strinati to Stefania Pasti; all will be received by the “host”, the Director Barbara Jatta, who with particular satisfaction emphasizes the happy coincidence between the publishing of this monograph, with its superb photographic accompaniment, and the completion of the restoration works – although those of the Room of Constantine are still in progress – which have brought the paintings of the Rooms to a state “very close to the original”, as Frommel himself acknowledges.
Free admission from 03.30 p.m. on presentation of the invitation
