The Senate buildings - Palazzo Madama (First floor)

Senators' Lounge (also known as 'Buvette')

This is an ample room designed by Marucelli with a ceiling featuring pale stucco figurines and friezes completed in 1931. A wonderful 16th-century Medici tapestry with a large coat of arms and wide borders borrowed from the Uffizi Gallery of Florence is hanging on the wall in front of the bar counter, on which there is a statuette fountain by Vincenzo Gemito (1852-1929). Two still life paintings by Luciano Ventrone, "The Pause" (2002) and "The Return of Ulysses" (2002), adorn the other walls.
