The rooms of Palazzo Besso
Entrance hall and main staircase
In the main courtyard you can admire the gallery , closed with windows and with rich moldings and friezes, an elegant example of the metal construction techniques of the late nineteenth century; also the entrance hall clearly denounces the eclectic taste of the period with stucco ceilings with geometric and floral motifs and large iron and glass chandeliers. The whole is a prelude to the evocative scenographic effect of the staircase with the double ramp in Carrara marble, the original solution of two central coupled columns and the monumental roofing skylight.
