Malatesti Room

The great Malatesti room also presents a frieze with tangent arcs to the ceiling, painted between 1921 and 1923, where one can admire the heraldic motifs of the Malatesti family and the motto “tempus loquendi tempus tacendi”, inscription taken from Ecclesiastes and desired by Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesti on the grave of his beloved wife Isotta degli Atti.
Among the particularly valuable furnishings are the chests of the XVIII century and the great painting of Giacomo Malatesti with his daughter Leonida dated 1562. Also interesting, though from the early twentieth century, is the pastel on paper with the portrait of Alberta Porta Natale, second wife of Zanvettori, who lived in the castle until 1983.
