Red Salon

This room features the richest wall decoration in the palace. The furniture is covered in gold foil, with the exception of the inlaid oriental rice-straw cabinet on the right. On the walls, a Sleeping Venus by Antonio Puccinelli (1822-1897) and four portraits: on the right General Andrea de Santa Cruz, president of Bolivia, by the South American painter A. Salas and the alabaster trader Giuseppe Viti, who was created Emir of Nepal and visir by an Indian raja, set in an inlaid alabaster frame; on the left Amerigo Viti and Niccolò Viti, brother and father respectively. At the sides of the window are two old Japanese fabric panels representing the working of tea and silk.
