On the walls are displayed tapestries belonging to two different periods and manufactures:
on the left wall there are tapestries woven in Rome by the Barberini workshop and commemorating important moments in the life of the Barberini pope Urban VIII.
On the left wall the important tapestries
woven in the 16th century by the workshop of Pieter van Aelst, the best in
Europe during the renaissance period, based on cartoons by the pupils of Raphael
and depicting episodes from the life of Jesus.
Particularly worth of notice
are the Adoration of the Magi, the massacre of the Innocents and the
Resurrection of Christ. The last one is one of the best example of ‘moving
perspective in the history of art, and the best executed on a tapestry.
