  {short description of image}  
 

Central section of the Great Palace at Pavlovsk - Begun in 1782-86 with original design by Cameron based on a Roman villa. It was too small and was expanded in 1796-99 by Vincenzo Brenna who added a 2nd story to the galleries and pavilons and then extended the curved wings. The Central bloc is neo-Classical in style with three stories and a cuploa with 8 corinthian columns in the portico. The cupola is a colonnaded drum with flattened dome. This provides windows that bring light into the Italian room below.
