The hall owes its name to the work of Domenico Peterlin, painter from Vicenza. “The triumph of the True” or “The Vision of St John Evangelist in Patmos” is a magnificent painting of XIX century, which the author donated for patriotic spirit to Vittorio Emanuele II, first king of Italy.
The painting shows both a religious subject and a National metaphor. The religious point of view is about the visions that St John had in Patmos described in the Apocalypse.
The national metaphor is referred to the Mazzini’s idea who imagined God and the people united, and the human and patriotic redemption as a religious fact. In his work Peterlin shows the liberation of Italy from the foreign domination. In facts, through the image of Jesus Christ defeating the Evil, the artist represents the martyrs of Italian history.
