Episode 178 – Rome – Raphael’s Room of the Fire in the Borgo
February 6, 2024

The last of the apartments decorated by Raphael for Popes Julius II and Leo X was the Room of the Fire in the Borgo, painted between 1514-1517. Although largely executed by Raphael’s student and friend Giulio Romano, the frescoes represent Raphael’s mature period and were completed only 3 years before the artist’s premature death in 1520. This episode will examine the style, iconography and history of the paintings in this extraordinary room with particular emphasis given to the homonymous fresco.
