Italy : Raphael's face reconstructed in 3D

Scientists at the Tor Vergata University in Rome used 3D images to reproduce Raphael's face. They said that it turned out that the remains in the tomb of the Pantheon really belonged to a Renaissance master. 

The 3D reconstruction was created by using skull castings that were made when the remains were excavated in 1833. Then, the experts compared the reconstruction with the artist's self-portrait and concluded that they matched.

"This is the first concrete evidence that the bones excavated in the Pantheon in 1833 belonged to Raphael," said Olga Rica, a professor at Tor Vergata University and one of the world's top anthropologists. Des said. Italy is currently commemorating the 500th anniversary of the death of the genius in Urbino.

The celebrations included an unprecedented exhibition at Raphael in Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome. This is the largest exhibition of Renaissance masters in history, featuring more than 200 works. Raphael died on April 6, 1520, at the age of 37.
