Vault of the vestibule

Villa Emo Capodilista, Fanzolo di Vedelago

The vast Central Hall, around which the rooms are distributed, is accessed by a vestibule whose vault is completely covered by a graceful pergola of vines laden with mature clusters of grapes, while in the fragment of sky that opens up at the centre, a cupid gets ready to scatter roses.
