The show

The new exhibition at the Palladio Museum is the result of a project carried out thanks to the support of the Italian Council (7th edition, 2019), the international promotion program of Italian art of the General Direction for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture. For the Vicenza museum it is an opportunity to continue working on the great architecture of the past, but from a contemporary perspective.

Developed in collaboration with the Atelier Kersten Geers at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture, the Fotogalleriet gallery in Oslo, the English museums Sir John Soane's Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum, the Stiftung Insel Hombroich foundation in Neuss, the project is not just a path of rediscovery carried out in the fifth centenary of Raphael's death, but also and above all a re-vision operation. The project has neither a philological nor a didactic approach. “Rather - explains Stefano Graziani - it aims to include all the possible shades of ambiguity that belong to photography”.

Graziani worked on a complex subject and, especially for the buildings of the artist from Urbino, apparently elusive. He observed their change over time and the process that transformed them into images. “In investigating the transformative capacity of photography - writes Francesco Zanot - Graziani simultaneously highlights the altered nature of his subjects. In practice, none of them correspond to the work that had appeared in Raphael's eyes, but it is in any case the outcome of different events and modifications that have occurred over time. Restorations, renovations, reconstructions, new creations based on the original projects mark the distance between past and present ".
