The Raphael-exibition reopened in Rome! #raphael #raffaello #raffaellosanzio #rome 'Visitors look at the paintings (from left) Young Man with an Apple, Young Woman with Unicorn and Portrait of a Man by Renaissance master Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, known as Raphael, on March 4 at the exhibition Raffaello 1520-1483 at the Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome.

It added up to the most comprehensive collection of the work of a painter who died at the age of 37 but who was still as acclaimed as contemporaries Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.

The exhibition opened amid great fanfare on March 5, but was forced to close days later when Italy announced Europe’s first nationwide coronavirus lockdown.

The exhibit reopened Tuesday with the opening-day fanfare replaced by a methodical entry scheme designed to assure social distancing. Visitors, who had to wear face masks, were required to reserve precise entry times. Each visitor had his or her temperature taken by a digital thermometer upon entry.

Organizers allowed one group of six visitors to enter every five minutes and each group was given five minutes in each of 10 halls featuring a period of Raphael’s works and objects important to his career, starting from his death 500 years ago and going back to his youth. A bell chimed at the end of each five-minute period to let each group know when it was time to move on to the next hall.

“It may seem a little mechanical, but it is what we needed to do to allow people to enjoy the exhibition safely,” Matteo Lafranconi, co-curator of the landmark retrospective, told the Xinhua News Agency. Lafranconi personally greeted many of the groups coming to the exhibition [...] @ Rome, Italy

*Torre di Palme originates from the ancient Picena city of Palma, founded in the 6th century BC and later occupied by the Romans, like the rest of the region, in 268 BC. The capital of Ager Palmensis was a center of great strategic importance and famous throughout the empire for its wine. Precisely because of its port relief, the Romans established the Fermana colony, charging it with the control of trade in the area. [...]
