La lezione di Raffaello. Le antichità romane

18 sep – 29 nov 2020

From 18 September to 29 November 2020, the Villa di Capo di Bove on the Appia Antica will host the exhibition “La lezione di Raffaello. Le antichità romane”Through paintings, engravings, books and drawings the exhibition will present some of the contents of the letter written by Raphael to Pope Leo X in 1519: words that gave rise to a new way of looking at the ancient finds and led to a veritable humanist and scientific revolution. 

The exhibition is hosted in the villa purchased by the Italian state in 2002 in the Complesso di Capo di Bove, which has a significant archaeological precinct with a Roman bathing complex  dating back to the second half of the 2nd century AD. A place that is the symbol of the state’s defence of the cultural and landscape heritage, since 2008 home to the archive of Antonio Cederna, the intellectual and journalist whose work is a staple of the recent history of the Appian Way.
