Along the sides of the ceiling it´s painted a large balcony where Oriental rugs are hanging out: a gallery of characters, many of them with musical instruments, leaning from the balcony to show the observers their love for the arts, music and poetry. The fresco is almost a showcase of the aristocracy of the time with portraits of rare elegance. In an evocative scenography, behind the balcony a turquoise sky, with a gazebo filled with branches of fruit, knotted around the balustrade.
