Giorgio Vasari, in printing his Lives of the Artists, handed over to posterity an exemplary portrait of Raphael, contributing to fueling the fame of the painter who, who established himself immediately, grew in subsequent eras. The myth of Raphael and the perfection of his art, the result of the immediate success of his works, was also consolidated by virtue of their diffusion: his creations in fact reached the most disparate contexts - in Italy and in Europe - thanks above all to the work of the engravers who with their prints allowed their rapid circulation, making them inexhaustible models of shapes and inventions. The study included in these pages is in the wake of research concerning the irradiation of Raphael's work, and for the first time it verifies its fortune in the specific field of tapestry. An in-depth investigation, which starts from the best known series of tapestries - derived from Raffaello cartoons and from those created for the "Scola Nuova" by his collaborators - to contemplate a whole series of artefacts derived from pictorial works, with particular attention to the frescoes made in Rome in the Vatican Rooms. Woven in the largest European manufactures, these products allowed the spread of Raphael's work, contributing, like the best-known engraving practice, to the consolidation and enrichment of the fortune of the great Renaissance artist. authors of the essays: Anna Cerboni Baiardi, Alessandra Rodolfo, Luisa Capodieci, Guy Delmarcel, N. Forti Grazzini, Jean Vittet, Pascal Bertrand, Marc Bayard, Hélène Gasnault, Nello Forti Grazzini and Maria Taboga.
