Useful Info

Pantheon is the most famous, and the best-preserved monument of ancient Rome. First constructed by Agrippa, in 27 B. C, it was restored by Domitian, after the fire of 80, and put together, once again, in its present rotunda shape by Emperor Hadrian.

In 609, it was dedicated by Boniface IV as a Christian Church (Santa Maria or ad Martyres). In the Middle Ages, it served as a fortress. Later times, it was despoiled by the Popes, especially by Urban VIII (Barberini) who melted down the bronze roof for the construction of the baldacchino in Saint Pietro (Bernini), and for 80 cannons of Castel Sant’Angelo. The building consists of a pronaos of 16 columns of red  and grey Egyptian granite, 12.50 meters high. Each column is composed of a single block. On the entablature of the 8 columns at fhe front, we read the dedication to Agrippa. The other columns, arranged in four rows, form aisles.

By way of the marble portal, and the original bronze door, we enter the building, and are immediately struck by the extraordinary harmony of line and proportion and by the sense of space. Above the entablature, runs an attic with niches. Crowning the vast central area, is a marveleus dome (diam. 43.40) divided into square panels. Formerly, these panels were ornamented with gilt bronze rosettes and the seven aediculae along the walls (of alternating rectangular and circular shape). They were richly covered with marbles, and adorned with bronze statues, (as were all the niches). In the first chapel to the right, a fresco, the Annunciation, attributed to Antoniazzo Romano.

In the second, the Tomb of Victor Emanuel II (d. 1878), and opposite, the Tomb of Umberto I (d. 1900) and Queen Margherita (d. 1926) in the third niche we see the Tomb of Raphael Sanzio. Upon his death in 1520, he had expressed the desire to be buried in the Pantheon. The Madonna is a statue of Baccio da Montelupo.
