The rooms of Palazzo Besso
Marco Besso entrance
The entrance to the current Reading Room has busts of Julius Caesar and two Roman emperors, Trajan and Marcus Aurelius, in the niches above the doors.
The floor is splendid, a composition of precious marbles, bardiglio, cipollino, African green and antique yellow that forms an articulated design of octagons and rhombuses of different sizes. To admire the liberty style French windows overlooking the square of Largo di Torre Argentina, with painted and profiled windows.
The Foundation has recently placed on the walls, inside central and corner mirrors, engravings by various authors from the large collection of Marco Besso's prints.
