Masterpieces of the hall

The hall

Sala da pranzo

This room is characterized by the fine wood panelling that covers all the walls and frames the four doors. The panels are carved into laurel branches and berries, with inserts made from light wood creating a ribbon pattern, which is outlined by squares of bronze. Ears of corn, arranged in groups of three and also made from bronze, demarcate the panels. Along the high cornice of the panelling hang a series of ‘plates’ of light wood, substituting for the original ceramic plates decorated with scenes of the countryside which used to hang here, but have unfortunately been lost.
