Foliage Room

The second room from the Tribuna, decorated with a lavish woods motif, for which it was called Sala a fogliami – Foliage Room –displayed lunettes with symbolic figures and Latin mottoes refferring to Giovanni’s struggles with the church authorities. It was Camillo Mantovano’s major work in the Grimani palace. This room contained a monumental chimneypiece and many antique busts; its overdoors were adorned with fragments of roman sarcophagi.
