The Municipalities of Urbino, Fano and Pesaro (Italy, Marche)
continue to share networking projects through the new cycle “Exhibitions for Leonardo and for Raphael”; divulged and implemented by the three municipalities as part of the celebrations organised by MIBAC [the Italian Ministry for Culture] to commemorate 500 years since the death of Leonardo da Vinci in 2019 and of Raphael in 2020.

After the success of the exhibitions “Rinascimento Segreto” [“Secret Renaissance”] in 2017 and “Rossini 150” in 2018, the three cities have joined forces again to pay tribute to the two great Renaissance geniuses. It is another step forward in the multi-centric enhancement process of local heritage, aimed at shaping a cultural identity and fostering tourism.
With support from the Marche Regional Government, the National Committee to commemorate 500 years since the death of Raphael, of the National Committee to commemorate 500 years since the death of Leonardo da Vinci, the Centro Studi Vitruviani in Fano, the Biblioteca Oliveriana in Pesaro, and curated by Sistema Museo, three events have been organised by the scientific committee, as a path with a unified guiding thread between these artists and their connection with the region.

In Urbino from 17 May, the exhibition entitled “From Raphael. Raffaellino del Colle”, curated by Vittorio Sgarbi, has been paying tribute to the ‘divine painter’ through the art of one of his most faithful followers.
In Fano there is a celebration of Leonardo, rediscovering his connection to Vitruvius, through the exhibition curated by Guido Beltramini, Francesca Borgo and Paolo Clini, “Leonardo and Vitruvius: beyond the Circle and the Square. Searching for Harmony. The Legendary Drawings of the Codex Atlanticus” at the Museo Archeologico and Pinacoteca of the Palazzo Malatestiano, in the Morganti Hall, from 12 July.
In Pesaro the artist Agostino Iacurci experiments with a contemporary vision of De Architectura by Vitruvius through an original project: from 14 July, in Palazzo Mosca – Musei Civici, “Agostino Iacurci. Tracing Vitruvius. An Oneiric Journey through the Pages of De Architectura”, curated by Marcello Smarrelli.

All exhibitions can be visited until 13th October.

URBINO
From Raphael. Raffaellino del Colle

The exhibition in Urbino, curated by Vittorio Sgarbi, paves the way for the celebration there in 2020, five hundred years since the death of Raphael (1483 – 1520), of whom Raffaellino (1494/97 – 1566) was one of the truest and smartest followers. The aim of the exhibition is to retrace the progress of the master from Sansepolcro, a student of the “divine painter” whose art, even though he mainly worked in the Marche region, deserves to be historically revalued and disseminated today. For the first time it will be possible to admire some of his most significant work from churches and museums in Rome, Cagli, Mercatello sul Metauro, Perugia, Piobbico, Sansepolcro, Sant’Angelo in Vado, Urbania and Urbino. The path is introduced through two works by Raphael, from the collection at the Accademia Nazionale of San Luca in Rome: a small panel, almost a premiere, showing the Madonna and Child and the fresco called Putto reggi festone.

FANO
Leonardo and Vitruvius: beyond the Circle and the Square.
Searching for Harmony. The Legendary Drawings of the Codex Atlanticus

In 2019 it will be five hundred years since the death of Leonardo da Vinci, the “universal genius” of the Renaissance. Hundreds of initiatives and events with an international outlook are planned all over Europe, most notably in Italy and France. Also the Municipality of Fano wishes to take part in the celebrations with a great event: from 12 July to 13 October 2019 the Museum of Palazzo Malatestiano, in the Morganti Hall, will be hosting the exhibition “Leonardo and Vitruvius: beyond the Circle and the Square.
Searching for Harmony. The Legendary Drawings of the Codex Atlanticus”, curated by Guido Beltramini, Francesca Borgo and Paolo Clini.
The exhibition in Fano, for the first time, will show visitors the battle between a man and book, between Leonardo and Vitruvius. This is the town of the great Roman architect, the site of the legendary Basilica, recently the subject of archaeological surveys, and were whole generations of architects have left their mark, starting in the Renaissance, from Fra Giocondo to Andrea Palladio and Claude Perrault.
Visitors will have the rare opportunity of seeing close-up five original drawings by Leonardo from the legendary Codex Atlanticus, kept at the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan. It is the first time in recent years that the valuable autograph sheets by Leonardo are displayed in a venue on the central Adriatic coast of Italy.

PESARO
Agostino Iacurci. Tracing Vitruvius.
An Oneiric Journey through the Pages of De Architectura

The Municipality of Pesaro, in partnership with Ente Olivieri – Biblioteca e Musei Oliveriani, presents the exhibition entitled “Agostino Iacurci. Tracing Vitruvius. An Oneiric Journey through the Pages of De Architectura”, curated by Marcello Smarrelli, with scientific advice from Brunella Paolini, scheduled at Palazzo Mosca – Musei Civici from 14 July to 13 October 2019.
The choice of describing the figure of Marcus Vitruvius Pollio – celebrated Roman architect and writer, from the second half of the 1st century B.C., considered the most famous theorist of architecture of all times – is associated with that made by Fano – the town where, according to tradition, Vitruvius was born – to celebrate Leonardo Da Vinci through the Codex Atlanticus sheets, where he is mentioned several times.

Tracing Vitruvius. An Oneiric Journey through the Pages of De Architectura is an articulated site specific project designed, for Musei Civici in Pesaro, by Agostino Iacurci (1986) – an artist known all over the world especially for his monumental mural paintings in public spaces – consisting of three-dimensional works and painting with a highly scenic nature, able to create a fascinating and involving dimension which accompanies the presentation of ten different editions of De Architectura, from the Biblioteca Oliveriana.
