Neoclassical Room

This room was refurbished at the end of the eighteenth century on the occasion of the wedding between the Roman princess Virginia Chigi and Giovanni Carlo Grimani, celebrated in 1791. The pictorial decoration of the ceiling was executed by an artist from Verona, Giovanni Faccioli. The subject of the wedding was illustrated by the mural painting above the entrance door which is a copy of the famous scene known as the Aldobrandini Wedding, a Roman fresco discovered during excavations in 1601 and purchased by cardinal Pietro Aldobrandini.
