The Ufficio Filatelico e Numismatico of San Marino issues a divisional coin set with two 2€ commemorative coins in proof finishing. The first 2€ commemorative coin is dedicated to Raffaello, son of Giovanni Santi and scholar of the Perugino, was painter and architect. He had a precocious talent and he acknowledged embodying the supreme ideal of serenity and beauty of Renaissance. The obverse of the coin dedicated to the 500th anniversary of his death depicts the profile of the Virgin, a detail of the fresco “Madonna di Casa Santi”, which is the first masterpiece of the young Raffaello and is located in his family’s house in Urbino (currently seat of the eminent Accademia Raffaello). The second 2€ commemorative coin celebrates Giambattista Tiepolo, the greatest painter of the eighteenth century and the last representative of the glorious Venetian School. The obverse of the 2 euro coin depicts the moment when the angel sent by God saves Hagar and Ishmael who were lost in the desert, pointing to them a source of water. The detail is taken from the painting "Agar and Ismael", one of the absolute masterpieces of Tiepolo which is kept in the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, an important Venetian confraternity.
