The room is named after Lucio Fontana, the author of the slashed canvas of 1965, set in a splendid gilt frame
above a Louis XV chest of drawers in lacquered wood, which dominates the space, a passageway between the large Billiard Room and the smaller 19th-century Room, offering lateral access to what was once a square atrium open to the outside.
