Prof. Faietti will present one of the artist’s most intriguing drawings, known as Raphael’s Dream, a mysterious composition portraying a charming female figure seated at a parapet, two angels, and architectural fragments, and will unravel the drawing’s mystery and explain how this unique work of art enhances our appreciation for Raphael’s monumental artistic achievements.

The webinar will be moderated by Prof. Emanuele Lugli, Stanford University.


Marzia Faietti, Adjunct Professor, Department of the Arts, University of Bologna, was the Director of Art History at the Uffizi Galleries in Florence from 2004 through 2018, where she coordinated the Cabinet of Drawings and Prints.

Professor Faietti is the co-curator of the major exhibition Raphael 1520-1483 at Rome’s Scuderie del Quirinale and the curator of many exhibitions in Italy and abroad, including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Getty Museum. She is the author of numerous articles and books, most recently The Power of Line.
