It encompassed a vast painting depicting a marine scene of statues, vases and antique columns amidst fishing nets, rocks and algae.

Designed by two noted Italian Architects, Gio Panti and Nino Zoncada, the First Class Lounge onboard Giulio Cesare was perhaps the most beautiful room afloat on the Genoa to South America run. The large impressive mural by Salvatore Fiume depicted a medieval scene.

The beauty of the spacious cabins was carried to the nth degree. The floral design of the bedspread and draperies was especially created for the staterooms. The beautiful Chapel of the Giulio Cesare, like all ships of the Italian Line, provided the perfect atmosphere for contemplation and meditation. A Chaplain was a member of the crew and conducted daily Mass.
