Fresco at the Castel S Angelo

Castel S Angelo 22

This celing panel along the outer wall of Castel S. Angelo is very similar in style to the frescoes that adorn the walls of the command chamber. (photography was prohibited in there) I assume the command chamber was originally the location of the urns containing Hadrian's remains. However, the style appears to be more medieval than imperial so it may have been a later embellishment to the structure.
