Raphael and the Sublimation of Beauty
September 13 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
Our Cultural Committee has been hard at work for the last few weeks reimagining our next 2020 Virtual Events. We may not be able to be physically together this year, but like every event it will be special.
Please join us on: Sunday, September 13 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Virtual Event-Zoom Presentation
In this special Caffè Cultura, we will celebrate the 500th anniversary from the death of the immortal Renaissance painter, Raffaello Sanzio. We will go over the artist’s career from his childhood to his final success in Rome exploring some of the innovations that he brought to the world of visual arts and that ended up transforming Western aesthetics. We will talk about Raphael’s dedication to his craft, his relationship with other important artists of the time, and how his work fits in the general cultural climate of the XVI century.
To present this Caffè Cultura is one of our board members, Erika Caturegli, who has a minor in Art History, and who is just a great art history aficionado.
Virtual Event Registration by July September 11. A confirmation email will include the link to partecipate.
