The Pantheon or "Temple of all the gods" is one of the most visited places in the city of Rome. It was built by Emperor Hadrian in the second century AD It consists of a building that can be inscribed in a perfect sphere, with a height equal to its diameter in accordance with the dictates of classical architecture. She is now a basilica dedicated to Santa Maria della Rotonda. The colonnade is formed by eight columns of granite.

The building of the National Gallery born as "Temple of the Arts" and has the facade that reflects the colonnade of eight columns. Its initial implementation was subject to many compromises so as to produce a modest and highly criticized result. As early as the nineteenth century was subjected to repeated expansions, which also served to improve the architectural symmetry. The ratings on the facade are therefore considerably improved with time and today the National Gallery is one of the most important references for art from around the world.

The pendant is inspired by the eight columns can be worn as charms on the bracelet, necklace or key ring or as a decoration of a bag, a wallet or another clothing accessory.
