The rooms of Palazzo Besso
The corner room, ancient
it takes its name from the bronze sculpture "The Melody" which was placed in the center of the room; the reference to music today remains in the decorative motifs "the instrument of the lyre" of the two windows.
The coffered ceiling with floral motifs and a frieze with cherubs and garlands and medallions with the dove in the center, a cartouche of the Foundation, are to be admired. Above the marble fireplace, there is a blow-up of Salvatore Besso's last photo , taken in Beijing, a few days before his death, in 1912.
This room marks the boundary of the nineteenth-century demolition of the palace.
