In Milan, Raphael for Christmas

In the beautiful town hall in Milan, from 3 December until 11 January, tourists and art lovers will be able to see the famous painting by Raphael's "Madonna
Esterházy "owned by the museum in Budapest.
The beautiful picture was painted by Raphael around 1508. Later the painting was donated by Pope Clement XI to Elisabetta Cristina di Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel and then passed to the family Esterházy in Hungary.

The painting will be exhibited in the old room "Alessi".
