The Sistine Chapel Without having seen the Sistine Chapel it is not possible to form an appreciable idea of what a man alone is able to obtain - "Johann Wolfgang von Goethe". Inaugurated on August 15th, 1483, the interior of the chapel is composed of a single nave with a lowered barrel vault with plumes and a lunette above each of the twenty windows. Inside the wonderful frescoes that cover the vault, among which stands out in the center "The Creation of Adam" and the immense "Last Judgment" that fills the wall of the altar. But in addition to Buonarroti's masterpieces inside the Chapel there are also contributions by other important artists: Pietro Perugino, Sandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio, and others.

Raffello's rooms Probably second only to the Sistine Chapel, Raphael's rooms are undoubtedly one of the main attractions of the Vatican Museums. The rooms were the private apartments of Pope Julius II, who entrusted the realization of the frescoes to Raphael. The painter from Urbino worked there from 1508 to 1520, the year of his death, after which the work was carried out by his pupils until 1524. The most famous is undoubtedly the Stanza della Segnatura, which housed the private library of Julius II. Here are four frescoes representing the four main disciplines of knowledge: the Dispute of the Sacrament (Theology), the School of Athens (Philosophy), the Parnassus (Poetry) and Virtue and Law (Jurisprudence).
