The Arcades du Capitole also known as the Galerue des Arcades is a series of 29 serigraphs (silk screen prints) on translucent material fastened to illuminated cases on the ceiling of the arcade of the Capitole building. Each serigraph measures 2.50 x 3.10 metres. The series depicts the history of Toulouse. Moretti executed 89 works from which the 29 were chosen. Moretti also installed a huge Occitan cross (cross of Languedoc) made of bronze measuring 18 metres wide and weighing 20 tons embedded in the square in front of the Capitole. This panel depicts the Capitouls, the governing magistrates of Toulouse who embarked on the construction of the original building in 1190, to provide a seat for the government of a province growing in wealth and influence. The name 'Capitole' referred not only to the former Roman Capitol but also to the capitulum which was the chapter of the governing magistrates.
