"Federico da Montefeltro's Studio" Exhibition
This event has ended.
Federico da Montefeltro (1422-1482) was the ruler of the duchy of Urbino, a skilled general as well as a scholar and humanist with numerous ties to artists and cognoscenti of the time, contributing to the flowering of the Italian Renaissance by being a patron of the arts. His studio was a place used for fruitful exchanges with friends, reading, study and contemplation.
The original "studiolo" was sold to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 1939, but this exhibition features a skillful reconstruction with the same dimensions as the original that took local craftsmen more than 5 years to complete.
In addition to this studiolo, copies of Montefeltro's sacred books, as well as 15 Renaissance-era ceramic pieces, and Piero della Francesca's work on perspective, “De prospectiva pingendi”, will be on display.
