Monarchy Hall or Hall after the Vestibule

The name, “Monarchy hall,” derived from the fresco located in the ceiling’s central medallion. This is attributed to the painter, Giuseppe Doneda so-called “Montalto” (around 1609-1680) and portrays an allegory of the Spanish Monarchy, evidenced by a rich stucco cornice with heads of small angels, suggesting that the work was by the sculptor from Como, Giovanni Battista Barberini.
