The Bacchus Room

The Bacchus Room is entirely frescoed with Stories of the myth of Bacchusi, the Seasons, and the three Continents by Francesco Podesti, in a structure decorated with grotesques, masks and tiny landscapes by Caretti. In the centre of the ceiling (which recently collapsed but has been rebuilt though its decoration now is limited to the geometric division of the original ornamentation) there used to be a representation of Bacchus finding Ariadne in Crete.
The polychrome mosaic floor illustrates Hercules as a boy throttling the serpents.
