A much anticipated loan exhibition commemorating the 500th anniversary of the death of Renaissance artist Raphael will reopen from June 2 to August 30 in Rome after the exhibit abruptly closed in March due to the coronavirus lockdown. 

A video overview of the exhibition is available here.

Some 70,000 tickets had pre-sold online for the show at the Scuderie del Quirinale Gallery which opened March 5 before closing three days later due to the rapid spread of covid-19 in Italy. 

Organizers said Monday that loans were succesfully extended, including major works from the Queen’s Royal Collection Trust, Florence’s Uffizi, Madrid’s Prado, London’s National Gallery, the British Museum, DC's National Gallery of Art and others.

Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, or Raphael, was born in 1483 and died on April 6, 1520, his birthday, at age 37 after a sudden illness. The exhibition, considered a highlight of Italy's 2020 cultural events, gathers 120 of the artist's works.
