Notes on the Geography of Italy: Vicenza: Villa Rotonda: Photo 17

world pictures Italy: Vicenza: Villa Rotonda

Each of the four big corner rooms has a fireplace, but each fireplace is different. This one, at the southeast corner, is of red Veronese marble. Like the other fireplaces it carries an immense plaster sculpture by Ottaviano Ridolfi. This one shows Minerva and Mars, possibly with Jupiter above. Interesting, that so many pagan figures should appear in the house of a prelate.

How does one clean the plaster if the fireplace starts to smoke? Only the servants know.
