For the first time in Barumini, the unique works of Raphael on an unpublished exhibition from August 8 to December 31 at the Centre "Giovanni Lilliu".

Barumini, 23 July 2020. Signs, images, projections, contents and visual suggestions that immerse the imagination of the famous artist Raffaello by extracting some essential aspects, difficult to disclose through traditional ways.
It is the heart of the multimedia exhibition: "Raffaello _Princeps_ Images and Imaginary by Raffaello Sanzio", which opens on Saturday 8 August in Barumini. The exhibition, organized and strongly desired by the Fondazione Barumini Sistema Cultura, will be set up until 31 December at the Centre "G. Lilliu" and is part of the celebrations for the 500th anniversary of the painter's death Raffaello Sanzio.
Despite the moment of serious difficulty, the Foundation and the municipality of Barumini, in collaboration with the National Galleries of the Marche Palazzo Ducale, the Academy of Fine Arts of Sassari and the Archive of Corporate Cinema (Ivrea) - Experimental Center of cinematography, wanted to keep their cultural offer alive with an important effort that wants to make available to tourists, Sardinians but above all to all the students of Sardinia, an event made of contents and technologies for educational study.

LILLIU AND BISACCIA. "The meeting and collaboration between institutions, in synergy with the associations that gravitate around the world of Raphael, has made it possible to obtain important results - says the mayor of Barumini and president of the Foundation, Emanuele Lilliu - a particular season whose fragility new challenges can arise, like ours. We wanted to pay homage to Raphael through innovative methods that put our visitors in total safety, without losing the emotion that the genius of Renaissance art wanted to convey to us, in which space and time, eternal dimensions of the soul, are they manifest in the works created by the artist".
"The beautiful initiative in which we participated thanks to the involvement of the municipal administration of Barumini and the Foundation, is an event that fits fully into the choice of the Academy of Fine Arts" Mario Sironi "in Sassari to be present directly in the very rich territory of Sardinia - says Antonio Bisaccia, director of the academy - the topic interests us particularly because precisely in those centuries the birth of the Academies and its articulation with respect to the disciplines closest to it are at stake. For teaching staff and students it is a further opportunity for dialogue with the island's territorial culture represented by a place of exceptional cultural liveliness and value, home to an archaeological excellence and Unesco site such as the Su Nuraxi complex, which has been able to naturalness to interface with the great national artistic themes".

THE EXHIBITION.
