The Italian Artists and Poets Room

The Italian Artists and Poets Room is named after the 32 portraits painted by Pietro Paoletti within a Gothic-style painted architectural structure that was once enhanced with views and coloured window glass.

The portraits are painted in standard generic Neo-Renaissance style. In the company of such famous figures as Dante, Petrarch, Leonardo and Michelangelo is the portrait of Carlo Torlonia, who was added in place of Giorgio Vasari.
