The Room of the Cyclamen

The room takes its name from the fine floor of marble agglomerate tiles decorated with cyclamen, which was designed by Umberto Botazzi and made by the Vianini firm.

The room was for the use of guests so it was not given any unusual decorative features.

Stanza dei ciclamini

Displayed in this room are a number of sketches for stained glass from the Picchiarini Archive, which give an idea of the huge repertoire available to the clients. There are geometric patterns, stylised elaborations of floral motifs of the ‘Liberty’ type and various other decorative subjects.

The most outstanding object in the room is the huge stained glass work known as “The Peacocks”, which was made by Umberto Bottazzi.
