Continuing on the left, you come to the Bath, clearly inspired by Renaissance “stoves” in its physical arrangement and in the decorations designed by Giovan Battista Caretti: grotesques on a red ground separated by panels containing scenes from mythological stories with erotic or aquatic themes, which were executed by the painter Pietro Paoletti from Belluno.


These are Leda and the Swan, the Abduction of Europa, Pan and Syrinx, the Birth of Venus, Diana and Callistus, Hylas abducted by the nymphs, and other stories.
Unusually, the scenes are painted in oils on masonry with the exception, on the far wall, of a half-fresco of Raphael’s Galatea, also painted by Paoletti.
