The interior of the Basilica of Maxentius was grandiose.
The inside decoration was made of polychrome marbles encrusted
in the walls and on the pavement. Gilded stucco on the panels of the vault,
as well as porphyry and marble columns. Many statues were added to the whole.
It was the perfect example for the architects of the Renaissance time.
