The clothing tells the viewer that the man is wealthy. The background items tell the viewer he is educated because of the scroll he is holding. They could be important because they could tell the viewer that the man is educated and has a good life. The artist wants the viewer to feel that this man is wealthy and has a good life. Also, that he is important in this world. I can conclude this because of the clothes he is wearing and the scroll he is holding. This man's name is Ippolito. Ippolito belongs to the upper class because of his clothes and he looks humble.
