Raphael Shutters

Raphael Shutters

2011 Restoration Pledge

The Artists are Master Carvers, Fra Giovanni da Verona and Giovanni Barilli, and are based on the original designs of Raphael. The pieces date from the early XVI century and include wooden doors and shutters in the “Raphael Rooms” which are part of the private apartments of Julius ll della Rovere (1503-1513) and are situated on the second floor of the Apostolic Palace. In addition to the splendid frescoes decorating the walls, the apartment also houses precious wooden window shutters. Fra Giovanni da Verona was chosen to make the wooden cabinet in the library of the Pope, which have since been lost. Yet we still have the extraordinary carpentry works of the 1500s, the finely inlaid and richly carved doors and window shutters of the Raphael Rooms.
