Raffaello Sanzio, universally known as Raffaello, was born in Urbino, Umbria, which in those years was at the center of the mighty Renaissance revolution that marked the whole world. In Umbria he trained having the opportunity to study artists such as Piero della Francesca, to then arrive in the school of Perugino. Raphael worked with great success throughout Italy before arriving in Rome in the early 1500s, called by Pope Julius II on the suggestion, so it is said, of Bramante who together with Michelangelo already enriched the papal court.
Among the many works by Raphael there was also the collaboration for the basilica of San Pietro, and many famous Roman palaces.
