1760
Fresco
Villa Widmann, Mira

The ceiling opens up to a blue sky, with a whimsical, lively framework that allows a glimpse of the celestial depths, also visible in four side compartments. The painter creates a complex allegorical image that celebrates the glory of the Widmann family. There is a representation of Juno Triumphant among the clouds. Below, female figures representing the Seasons are seated on clouds.
