The Senate buildings - Palazzo Madama (Second floor)

Quaestors' Anteroom

An ornate wooden staircase behind the Public Gallery leads to this room, which overlooks the Courtyard of the Palm Tree.

The walls are hung with the painting by Sandro Chia "The Triumph of Reason" and two tapestries, wool-woven "Narcissus" (cm. 330x330), designed by Corrado Cagli (1910-1976) and made by the Scassa Tapestry Factory of Asti, and 17th-century "Prudence". Two paintings of unknown authorship can be seen on the wall opposite to the wooden staircase, the first one with ruins of Ancient Rome and the second one depicting a bucolic landscape.
