The Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is one of the world’s oldest and most renowned museums. It rises just steps from the historic city center of Milan and guards treasures of inestimable cultural heritage and artistic value. When you enter, you find works of Leonardo, Titian and other Renaissance masters. You also find the imposing ROOM 5, the focus of this film. ROOM 5 houses one of the great art masterpieces of all time: the “Carton of Raphael,” preparatory drawing for The School of Athens by Raffaello Sanzio, the famous fresco now at the Vatican. This film tells of the refurbishment of ROOM 5, planned by Stefano Boeri Architetti and implemented by personnel who exemplify the highest excellence in technique and quality of workmanship in this restorative field. The goal: to maximize the aesthetic experience of this gigantic preparatory work of art, created entirely by hand by Raphael.
