Campidoglio Wedding Hall
Campidoglio Wedding Hall, also known as the “Red Hall” (Sala Rossa) in Rome, is located on the top of the Capitoline hill in the heart of the Eternal City next to piazza Venezia and the church of Santa Maria in Aracoeli. It is named as the “Red Hall” for the predominant colour of upholstery, curtains and carpets.
The Capitoline Hall is where the Mayor of Rome has his headquarters and was also once the site of a temple for the Capitoline Triad, started by Rome’s fifth king, Tarquinius Priscus. Michelangelo designed the marvelous piazza and restyled the surrounding palazzos dated 1536. He reversed the classical orientation of the Capitoline square, in a symbolic gesture turning Rome’s civic center to face away from the Roman Forum and instead in the direction of St. Peter’s Basilica. Michelangelo designed a beautiful monumental widestaircase (the Cordonata) ascending the hill to reach the high piazza.
The view is beautiful from the Capitoline hill over the domes, rooftops of Rome and panoramic views over the Roman Forum, which would be a wonderful backdrop for your wedding pictures after the civil wedding ceremony at Campidoglio Wedding Hall.
