Poor Jake. He’s not in Kansas anymore. At the time of Pope Leo X (1513 – 1521), the Fire in the Borgo room was used as a dining room and the task of frescoing the walls was assigned to Raphael, who entrusted a large part of the work to his students. The most beautiful photography from all around Rome is here.
