Eager of pleasure and knowledge, Raphael sensed at a young age his talent could only be appreciated at the sensual and wild Rome leaded by Popes Julius II and Leo x. He arrived there at 25, and few months later he became in the brightest star of the intellectual constellation. When he died at 37, he left Rome sunk into dispair like a lost beloved prince. Consulting documents, gathering proofs and interpreting the works of Raphael, restorer Antonio Forcellino presents us a biography as vibrant as a novel. Through its extraordinary pages, this book shows the genius from Urbino liberated of any kind of censorship and the myth becomes man and artist once again.
