Fresco Room

The room is named after the fresco by Carlo Innocenzo Carloni (Scaria d’Intelvi, 1686 - 1775) The Apotheosis of Bartolomeo Colleoni, on the ceiling. The fresco, from Villa Colleoni in Calusco d’Adda (Bergamo), was placed here in 1951. The large showcase on the wall has displayed since 1995 the splendid Persian Hunting Carpet dated 1542-1543. Temporarily on display in this room are also the other eleven carpets and some antique tapestries of the Museum.
