On upper part of the Eastern wall of the courtyard is a portrait of Charles the Great enthroned, commissioned around 1535 by Bernardo Cles and painted by Marcello Fogolino. Charles is flanked by dignitaries and soldiers bearing the Eagle, standard of the Empire and the light blue standard with the lilies with the standard of France.

Underneath, Fogolino also painted the bishops of Trento that ruled the city before AD 1000.
