Hall of Emperors in Rome Restored to Former Glory

The Hall of Emperors at the Capitoline Museums in Rome has been restored to its former glory. The hall houses portraits of 67 ancient Roman Emperors or their family members and was purchased in 1733 by Pope Clement XII as one of the core exhibits of the Capitoline Museums which opened the following year. The restoration has returned the walls to their original golden and pale blue hues, thus leading to a more realistic vision of what the hall might have looked like in the 1700s.
