Lamp

The complex was lit using a variety of lamps, both inside and outside: along the facade a number of fine lanterns in wrought iron were supported on elaborately designed brackets in the same material, which enclosed the Prince’s intitials, GT (Giovanni Torlonia), while the rooms had fine lamps with animal and plant decorations.
Only some have survived: among there are the delicate clover lamps which hung in the room of the same name; the elaborate circular lamp with leaves and poppy seed capsules, which hung from the ceiling of the Prince’s bedroom, and the lamp with the flight of the swallows, placed in the Hall. Other decorative elements in iron are found in various door decorations, in the parapet of the annex’s staricase, and in the fire screen in the Room of the clover.
