Raphael in the Saturn Room of Pitti Palace

The masterpieces by one of the geniuses of art history

Did you know that the Uffizi Galleries are the museum with the largest number of works by Raphael in the world?
The Saturn Room of Pitti Palace, named after the planet that rules over creativity, houses a real anthology of works by Raphael.
Among all the "Madonna della Seggiola" stands out, a painting that celebrates the strength of the first hug, the maternal one.
A universal gesture that simultaneously expresses powerful protection and infinite tenderness.
As a tribute to the 500 years since Raphael's death, the Director of the Uffizi Galleries Eike Schmidt opens the doors of the Palatine Gallery for you all.
