Abstract

Mural maps are a typical tradition of the XVIth Century cartography in the Italian context as symbols of knowledge, power and geopolitical struggle. While the main examples of the “Galleria delle carte geografiche” in Vatican and the “Sala della Cosmografia” in the Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola have been well studied, in the Villa Mondragone, near Rome, there is a later example dated XIX Century which seems to follow the same tradition with different aims. It was the Sala Ciampi, which was part of the Collegium animated by the Jesuits. Nowadays the two mural maps are in very poor conditions, but old postcards remind us how the Sala appeared during the 20’s and 30’s. This contribution represents a first approach in the study of the origins of those maps in the context of the late Renaissance Villa Mondragone, which can emerge other research interests.
