Room painted with blots of light blue

Set between two artistically important rooms in the history of art due to the scenic-decorative layout, the Room dubbed in blue does not present particular significant frescoes.

Completely void of attractive landscapes with ruins as in the previous hall or the triumph of the woods seen in the adjacent room, this room has only an architectonic framework where the painters were assigned to achieve the blue blots in imitation of marble. The term “blue stains” given to the room should, however, refer to its original decoration which must have been a really planetary one, according to a model that was quite diffused in the European courts. The assignment of the room to a very controversial theme like that of astronomy, was probably sacrificed in the years following the death of Bartolomeo Arese, whose tastes probably did not correspond with those of the nobles who bought the mansion.
