The Guest Room

There are no unusual features in this room, which was used, very rarely as far as we know, for guests.

Two large works of stained glass are displayed here, designed and created by Cesare Picchiarini, with a geometric design because, by his own admission, the master did not know how to draw and so was not able to plan elaborate figurative compositions.

On the walls are displayed a series of sketches, all of which also come from the Piccharini workshop, which alternate figurative and geometric subjects.

Alongside the many sketches is a curious item from the Piccharini studio, carefully conserved by Cesare’s sister Mariannina and given by her to Signora Tatiana Grauding, who, in turn, donated it to the museum. It is a display case containing a number of circles of glass, each with Picchiarini’s signature and a date.

The great glass worker was accustomed every year to inscribe a circle of glass in free hand using the point of a diamond, to demonstrate the firmness of his stroke and confirm his expert skill.
