Amazing. Raffaelo da Urbino.

IMG_2383

I walk up and down this street every day, sometimes many times each day.  And only today did I notice that I’m neighbors with Raphael!  According to this sign on Via de’ Ginori, roughly a block from my current street (where Ammannati lived), “Raffaelo da Urbino. Fu ospite Taddeo di Francesca Taddei, in Questa Casa, Nel MDV.”  Or, in inglese, “Raphael, was the guest of Taddeo di Francesca Taddei in this house in 1505.”  This city never ceases to amaze me!!
