The painter Benvenuti looks back to classical themes, to inspire moral integrity and solemnity. Referring to Iliad, the scene is described in the Book VI, when Hector, the prince and greatest warrior of the Trojans, incites his brother Paris to rejoin the battle at his side, instead of wasting time with Helen.
