19 Jan The Red Room
The Red Room is named after the predominant colour of the fabrics that decorate it. In the room there are rare elements of superbly crafted furniture, replicated by the engineer Zanvettori between 1921 and 1923. Of note is the four-poster bed that has at the top of the columns two carved eagles, manufactured in Emilia and dating back to the seventeenth century. Also interesting are the silk velvet and precious damask fabrics present in the room, reproduced in the 1920s to replicate antique textiles.
The restoration of the seventeenth-century cushion that covers the seat of the chair has revealed ancient fragments of a cut silk velvet, featuring floral motifs with large lobed leaves and flowers. In the room there is a panel depicting the Madonna and Child from the fourteenth century, produced in the Venetian area.
