Masterpieces of the hall

The hall

Palazzo Nuovo - Sala dei Filosofi

The arrangement of this collection of portraits of Greek and Roman philosophers and men of letters, very popular with the Romans for the decoration of their public and private buildings, is along the same lines as that in the Hall of the Emperors. 
Many of the portraits are late reproductions and were carried out long after the lifetime of the characters they represent.
