King’s Room

The bed, the room curtains and the tapestry are those that were in use in 1861, when King Victor Emmanuel II visited Volterra. At the centre is a magnificent alabaster table; on the walls, a Virgin and Child by Lucia Anguissola (1542-1565) and a Lady in black by Vittorio Corcos (1859-1933).

The portrait of monsignor was made by A.Barchi (1869-1897). Next to the window is a tent-stitch embroidered portrait of Victor Emmanuel II, and a biblical scene, also embroidered. Underneath are two 18th-century Lombard chests of drawers.
