Decoration in rooms of grotesques (detail)

Villa Emo Capodilista, Fanzolo di Vedelago

Two small rooms of grotesques conclude the decorative cycle of the villa. Here cupids, satyrs, garlands of roses, pergolas, birds, fish, and a variety of animals are distributed on the walls without any thematic intention but with great fantasy and compositional richness.
