The circular shaped room, inspired to the Temple of Vesta in Tivoli, with rich decorations in the fresco ceiling, has been designed around the number 7 and its multiples: 14 doors, 28 medallions portraying women and men's heads, 14 allegorical figures. The ceiling ends with a heptagram. Seven is the number of the days of the week, the deadly sins, the virtues, but it is also related to the musical notes and the strings of the lyre. The room is also called Echo Room for its peculiar acoustics: the closer you are to the center, the stronger the echo effect.
