The fresco on the western side wall represents the wedding banquet to celebrate Amore and Psiche's wedding. Satyrs and and voluptuous young women join together to enjoy the party and mingle with some characters drew from Federico's real guests. In this way, Giulio Romano is able to mirror in Apuleio's myth the Gonzaga family and its court.
