Pantheon

he most famous monument from ancient Rome, still in almost perfect condition. Erected by Agrippa in 27 B.C., restored by Domitian after the fire in 80, damaged, and rebuilt again by Hadrian, who gave it its present form. In 609 Pope Boniface IV dedicated it to the Christian faith (Santa Maria ad Martyres); during the Middle Ages it was also used as a fortress in the civil struggles; over the years it was despoiled by various popes, particularly by Pope Urban VII (Barberini) who had the bronze ceiling of the pronaos melted down to make the baldaquin (by Bernini) in St. Peter's and eighty cannons for Castel Sant'Angelo.


The building consists of a large cylindrical body, preceded by a pronaos of sixteen Egyptian granite columns with Corinthian capitels of more than twelve metres in height. Eight of the columns stand in front and the others are disposed in four rows, so as to form three aisles. The pediment, which was decorated in gilded bronze, bears an inscription with the name of Agrippa, maintained by Emperor Hadrian during his restoration. The marble portal, with the ancient bronze door intact, leads to the elegant, perfectly circular interior; equal in both diameter and height (43,30 m). On the lower level are seven full-length niches, each with a pair of Corinthian columns and pilasters, altemating with small rectangular niches surmounted by triangu1ar-shaped gables. Above the trabeation, is a high attic with blind windows alternating with square designs. The calotte dome provides the building's crowning touch. A remarkable optical effect is conveyed by the five rows of lacunars each smaller than its predecessor up to the great skylight oculus (9 m in diameter). In the fIrst niche to the right, the Annuciation, fresco attributed to Antoniazzo Romano; in the second, the tomb of Vittorio Emanuele II (d. 1878), and in the niche in the opposite wall, the tomb of Umberto I (d. 1900) and Queen Margherita (d. 1926). In the third niche, Raphaers tomb, who was buried in the Pantheon by his own wish (d. 1520); the statue ofthe Madonna in the niche is the work of Lorenzetto, probably in collaboration with Raffaello da Montelupo.

La facciata era in origine elevata su scalinata e preceduta da una piazza allungata, i cui portici celavano la rotonda retrostante creando un effetto di totale separazione dalla percezione spaziale dell'interno; il pronao (largo 33 m e profondo 16), con 16 colonne monolitiche (otto sulla fronte e le altre disposte in profondità a formare tre navate) in granito grigio e rosa alte 13 m, è coronato da un frontone, ornato in origine di un rilievo in bronzo e sormontato da un secondo timpano più alto e arretrato. I battenti di bronzo della porta non sono, come spesso ritenuto, quelli antichi, ma risalgono a un pressoché totale rifacimento dell'età di Pio IV. Ai lati del portale sono due nicchie, destinate probabilmente alle statue di Augusto e di Agrippa; in due vani retro stanti erano ricavate due scale (si conserva quella di sinistra) per il controllo delle parti alte dell'edificio e dell'esterno della cupola. Un corpo parallelepipedo rivestito in marmo media l'attacco fra il pronao e la rotonda; quest'ultima presenta muri laterizi, dello spessore di m 6.20, scanditi da nicchie, volte e archi di scarico che alleggeriscono la struttura. La cupola, del diametro di m 43.30 pari all'altezza dal pavimento al suo colmo, fu voltata su un'unica centina emisferica con un getto di conglomerato, contenente lapillo vulcanico in modo da alleggerirlo.
