The mural of The School of Athens is only one of the four that make up the series of la Stanza della Segnatura, a room to sign documents in the Vatican. The room was designed and decorated by the great Raphael, who extrapolated philosophical ideas into paintings. The symbols of the center of the roof pertain to the supreme ideal, source of the major archetypes of Plato: truth, justice, good and beauty. These ideas, represented by four figures, are captured in the paintings on the walls. The School of Athens corresponds to the wall of Philosophy and refers to Truth. A talk was held on the philosophers depicted in the mural, their ideas and basic concepts.
