Stanza dei paesaggi


An inventory taken in 1799 mentions the “second painted drawing room, adjoining the Chamber with fireplace”: the reference was to this room and the eighteenth-century landscapes that adorn three of its walls. Covered with whitewash in the nineteenth century, the frescoes were brought back to light during the restoration work carried out in Casa Buonarroti in 1964. At present this pleasant room is used to screen the video La Casa Buonarroti a Firenze, made by Claudio Pizzorusso in 1994. The video is the first in the series on the “Museums of Tuscany” produced by the Università per Stranieri, in Siena.
