Raphael Sanzio was born in Urbino, lived and worked in Florence for barely four years at the beginning of the sixteenth century, but notwithstanding the short time he spent in this city, there are a large number of his works here. The young painter had come to Florence after hearing about the artistic climate in the city, as he wanted to know and learn. He very soon managed to obtain various private commissions from a number of Florentine personalities, which is why many of his works are to be found in the Uffizi Galleries as well as in the Palatine Gallery in Palazzo Pitti, which boasts the largest collection in the world of Raphael’s paintings – nine!
