Hall of the Pontiffs - Palazzo Lateranense

Hall of the Pontiffs

It takes its name from the depiction of nineteen pontiffs that runs along the frieze in the upper register of the room. The latter, from the wooden ceiling to the wall decorations, is a hymn to the works accomplished by Pope Sixtus V in the city of Rome. The hall, however, is now commonly known as the Hall of the Lateran Pacts, as these were made here on February 11, 1929.
