The Gallery of Maps

The Gallery of Maps (Galleria delle carte geografiche) is a gallery in the Vatican Museums containing a series of painted topographical maps of Italy based on drawings by friar and geographer Ignazio Danti. The gallery was commissioned in 1580 by Pope Gregory XIII as part of other artistic works commissioned by the Pope to decorate the Vatican. It took Danti three years (1580-1583) to complete the 40 panels of the 120 m long gallery.

Gallery of the Candelabras

Gallery of the Candelabra in Vatican Museums, Rome, (262 ft. long) named after the eight magnificent candelabra of white marble within. The Gallery was commissioned and opened by Pope Pius VI in 1761 At present it contains many fine works of Roman antique sculpture. Therefore the artwork on the walls and ceilings tend to go unnoticed. They blur into the myriad of ther beautiful and fascinating objects in view and as one`s concentration is disturbed by the jostling and movement of the crowd about. The Gallery was restored by Pope Leo XIII in 1883-7
