Detail of the frieze in the Room of Drusus the Elder

Late 19th century

Quirinale Palace

Quirinale Palace
Rome, Italy

The frieze paintings depict groups of cherubs and rich plant motifs. In the decoration are remembered, on the shields held by the cherubs, both famous battles of the era of Charles Albert and Victor Emmanuel II, and Roman victories of the III and II century BC, suggesting a parallel between the greatness of the Roman Empire and the expansion of the Savoy State. On the long walls you can see large daisies that allude to King Umberto's consort, Queen Margherita.
