Long Description:
"Many of the thousands of tourists who daily visit the Pantheon of Agrippa are unaware that the great Rafael Sanzio, a Renaissance painter, who died in the middle of the youth on Good Friday in 1520. The burial was an amazing event in the city of the ephemeris, being veiled in the Vatican itself along with one of his last works, the Transfiguration. Later he was buried in the Pantheon with the epitaph written by Pietro Bembo " Here lies Rafael, by whom in life nature feared being defeated, and when he died, she feared dying. "

The tomb is made from marble and and the laurel wreath that it has, has an inscription that I am going to say because it would spoil a virtual cache.
