Chamber of Apollo

To renew the decoration of the family house Raphael’s best assistants were engaged between 1537 and 1540; they worked at a suite of three rooms inspired by ancient mythology.

In this room Francesco Salviati and Giovanni da Udine made stucco works and frescoes; the main subjects are the Apotheosis of the Chariot of the Sun and the Stories of Marsyas.

A lunette, frescoed by Giuseppe Porta or Lambert Sustris, depicts the Stories of Coriolanus or the Glorification of the Grimani Family.
