In the corners, the two celebrated and imposing alabaster candelabra made for Maximilian of Habsburg, the emperor of Mexico, and remained unsold after Maximilian’s shooting at Querétaro in 1867; paraffin lamps were lighted in the bulbs. The other columned alabaster candelabra date from the first half of the 19th century, and were all made in the Viti workshops. Along the walls are four consoles with marble tops. On the consoles, cases containing stuffed birds of paradise of New Guinea, a Balinese balsa-wood temple, a Chinese ivory junk, and Chinese ivory chessmen. The oriental items in the palace were brought back from the numerous journeys around the world made by the members of the Viti family. The portraits of young women were painted in the 17th century byMilanese artists Cittadini and Ceresa. Notable are the beautiful floor with white tesserae of hardened alabaster; the chandeliers are the Murano glass.
