This exhibition retains the character of the original private quarters of this former palace and the numerous rooms not only display many prestigious works of art but are, in themselves, important within the realms of art history. For example, the music room is decorated and furnished in Neo-Classical style and the ceilings, which are fresco's and decorated with golden stucco, are one of the most important examples of Baroque art in Florence. The Sala di Venere (Room of Venus) houses the famous Portrait of a Lady, known as the La Bella, by Titian, and the Sala della Stufa (Room of the Stove) a fresco by Pietro da Cortona. There is a magnificent collection of canvases from the 16th to the 18th Century of which the collection of works by Titian and Raphael are particularly noteworthy as are the pictures by Ruebens and Van Dyck.
