The architect commissioned a fresco artist, Roberto Cardone with whom he has collaborated for twenty years, along with his son and daughter, to paint a coffered pattern on the ceiling and trompe l’oeil marble on the walls.
The architect laughs when he recalls the consternation of the workmen who replastered the walls when they later returned and saw that the smooth new surface they had labored over so painstakingly had been painted to look crumbling and decrepit…
Not even the columns, which appear to be of "africano", a popular local marble, are real.
