Published on

A 2000-year old Roman wall decoration frieze known as the 'Aldobrandini Wedding (Nozze Aldobrandini)' was discovered in 1605 on the Esquiline Hill in Rome and soon transferred to a villa on the Quirinal Hill, possession of the Aldobrandini family, hence its name. Since 1818 it belongs to the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana in Rome. It was popular among artists of the 17th-19th centuries.
