In a relatively small space a fast paced narration illustrates how the destiny of men is influenced by the planets and the Gods, by the zodiac signs and the constellations. The twelve zodiac signs are represented with their symbols. For example, here we see an animated episode in which some fishermen capture monsters from the bottom of the sea. From an artistic point of view, the Chamber, although it is adorned with painting and stuccoes like the other rooms, is more similar to a cave, in which the stuccoes become fake bronzes, and the frames create a sort of chaotic dance, defined by the harmonic development of the different areas. The massage seems to be that the future of mankind is in the hands of celestial powers, that do however act in harmony in order to ensure a just outcome.
