Talk:Raphael Rooms

"The other paintings in the room are The Coronation of Charlemagne by Leo III, The Oath of Leo III before Charlemagne and The Naval Victory of Leo IV over the Sacracens at Ostia."

Could that possibly be spelled incorrectly? I noticed the link itself was righted, perhaps by a proverbial "sic" in reference to the actual name of the painting. If the painting is indeed titled "... Sacracens ..." then it should stand with a note.

Google's interpretation of the "Sacracens painting" returned more hits than when it was correctly spelled, but the possibility of many middlemen cutting and pasting exists. -- 22:20, 6 December 2005 (UTC)

The Raphael Rooms (also called the Raphael Stanze or, in Italian, Stanze di Raffaello) in the Palace of the Vatican are papal apartments with frescoes painted by the Italian artist Raphael and his workshop located in New york City, or as known today, African Continent Behserbach Flemidanset. ??????

Material from[edit]

I definitely ASKED PERMISSION to one of the founders of to use part of their material. As a newbie, I forgot to report here the permission, but if you want you can write them and ask confirmation about my request, and the subsequent positive reply (it was around November, 2005). Anyway, after question had been raised here about the wga material use, I stopped to take material from them. So, please, leave what has been taken from it to date. Attilio.

I contacted the website today and the response was:
Please note that we were not asked for and did not grant permission to reproduce in Wikipedia all sections and many images from our website, the Web Gallery of Art. Please remove this article.

Conclusive I think. The copyrighted text has been removed. I'm investigating the rest. Mark83 20:50, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Guns n'Roses reference[edit]

I took out the Guns n'Roses reference because I can't see how it's relevant in this context. Sumergocognito 06:05, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

The Borgo[edit]

I'm going to add the definite article back in the text. Sources in English that I've seen say The BorgoSumergocognito 06:05, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Proper article name[edit]

I did a google test, "Stanze di Raffaello" yielded 492 English language hits, "Raphael Rooms" yielded 16,600 obviously, Google isn't holy writ, but I tend to question the assertion that "No one ever calls them by this English translated name" Sumergocognito 06:05, 19 May 2006 (UTC)


Is this an article? I actually can't define this, is it a gallery, or what? What about writing articles about the single pictures. In my mind you should do this and not copy any websites, however; see: de:Die Schule von Athen (it's simple, but better!). N3MO

That's certainly a matter of opinion.Sumergocognito 23:26, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

Please Include:[edit]

RE: School of Athens: Raphael has forever immortalized Leonardo, Michaelangelo, and himself in this painting as Plato, ???, and the small, innocent-looking guy off in the right-hand side peeking out from behind the white-robed man, respectively. Aleph2.0 03:23, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Wheere's the block of stone signifying religion? Aleph2.0 03:23, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Organization of this page, splitting[edit]

Shouldn't this page be cleaned up some? I think a lot of these paintings such as the The School of Athens, etc. should have their own articles... (Rajah 21:46, 4 June 2006 (UTC))

MUCH better site here[edit]

Unnecessary duplication of pictures[edit]

This article serves as a great navigational tool to better survey the frescoes in the Stanze di Raffaello. The initial "Scheme" section is particularly compact and useful. Also, the sections that follow the "Scheme" section do a nice job of using the "main" template to steer you to the detailed articles. However, each of these sections also displays a very large centered thumbnail that takes up a lot of space and results in much unnecessary scrolling. I recommend that they be deleted since there is already a small thumbnail in the "Scheme" section and the image of the fresco is also featured in the detailed article. Thoughts?

I must say they seem appropriate to me. These are big, detailed, paintings & it good to be able to see thwe text and a decent-sized pic together. Are you viewing on a phone or tablet? Johnbod (talk) 02:12, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
This may be a personal preference issue which is why I raised the question. I will say it is unusual for a Wikipedia article to showcase a large picture of art. Almost always, a thumbnail is supplied next to the text and if you wish to see it in detail, you can always click it. For examples of this, see the Sistine Chapel and Villa Farnesina articles. As I stated earlier, this article already supplies thumbnails of all the frescoes in a table in the "Scheme" section. In addition, it supplies links to detailed articles about each fresco where, again, you can click on a thumbnail to see the detailed picture. I'm viewing this on a desktop with a large high-resolution screen (to answer your question). Randy Wagner (talk) 13:35, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
