Egyptian Room

Next to Alessandro’s Room lies the Egyptian Room. This is lined entirely with decorations inspired by ancient Egypt.
Caretti’s painted decorations incorporate panels by Luigi Fioroni of Stories of Cleopatra: The meeting of Anthony and Cleopatra, the Crowning of Anthony and Cleopatra, and Cleopatra kneeling before Anthony.
The panels are inserted in a complex decorative programme of hieroglyphs, columns and false architectural elements made to imitate basalt. The floor is made from bands of white marble and bardiglio, with two mosaic panels at the centre also showing scenes from the story of Anthony and Cleopatra.
