Entrance hall

From the hall on ground floor you can arrive at the Entrance Hall on the noble floor, characterized by a loggia created on 1860 thanks to the three-part window “a serliana” insertion.

Under the present false ceiling – dated back to the first half of Nineteenth century- you can find a more ancient ceiling with painted beams.

The upper frieze dates to the first half of Twentieth century. It represents family’s emblems married to degli Oddi’s family. The inscriptions under the emblems are following insertions (1919, thanks to Angelo Marini Clarelli).

  • from the left door you can access to the “Good Apartment”;
  • From the right door you can access to the “Lady Apartment”;
  • The door in front of the Entrance opens up to the Anticappella, the Chapel and the Fruit Room: this spaces are not yet open to the public.
