The Banquet of Zenobia

Villa Zenobio, Santa Bona Nuova

The wall frescoes in the ballroom focus on the narration of episodes from the life of Queen Zenobia and represent The Banquet of Zenobia and Triumph of Aureliano. However, the interpretation of these scenes is debated.

In the banquet scene, the painter's indebtness to Tiepolo is obvious. The scene bears a resemblance in several aspects to Tiepolo's fresco in the Palazzo Labia.
