Room of the Fireplace

This large room was frescoed in the 1560s with the decorations composed of monochromes columns, few fragments of which survived. Dominating the space is the monumental fireplace in coloured marble and white stucco. The elegance and the quality of some particulars, such as the garlands and the wide mouth monster visible in the centre, recall the mannerist geniality and inventive extravagance of the solutions Federico Zuccari adopted in his private residence on the Pincio Hill in Rome.
