Virtual Visit of this Room

In the frieze: Atlas, Banquet offered by Saul to Samuel, Banquet of Thyestes and allegorical figures by Orlando Parentini, dating to the pontificate of Pius IV (1559-1565). The room is dedicated entirely to the Astarita Collection, an important collection of Greek ceramics donated to Pope Paul VI in 1967. All the objects displayed are of great interest, and many are worthy of special attention.
