The Gallery of the Geographical Maps is one hundred and twenty metres long and represents one of the most fascinating areas within the Vatican
History seems to seep into the geography through the depiction of famous episodes from the past. Thus Italy is depicted from north to south, from Liguria to Calabria, from the Duchy of Milan to Puglia, with its mountains, valleys, forests and lakes, as well as through the events that brought about its identity and glory. Through an extremely vivid and detailed depiction, Julius Caesar is seen crossing the Rubicon River near Rome whilst Hannibal defeats the Roman troops at Lake Trasimeno.
The same team of artists, who worked on the series of geographic maps, also received the challenge of painting the vault, on which the lives and miracles of the patron saints of each region are illustrated: from Ambrose to Januarius, from Agatha to Francis of Paola. The Gallery presents the visitor with an already modern idea of Italy, a country bound together not by politics, but by history, culture and religion.
