Pier Maria Rossi and Bianca Pellegrini

c. 1460
Golden Room, Castello di Torrechiara, Torrechiara

In the fourth and last scene, on the northeast wall, the two lovers are seen for the first time from the front, standing in the side niches of a structure reminiscent of a triptych. The two castles in the background of the scene allude to the couple's actual situation: on the left is San Secondo, the chief residence of Pier Maria Rossi, and on the right is Roccabianca, the castle he built for Bianca Pellegrini.
