Photographer's Note

Hall of Jupiter

It is the largest room in the so-called "summer apartment", located on the north and north-east sides of the "Prelates' floor". A complex system of trompe-l'oeil perspective openings is depicted on the walls, executed around 1562 and traditionally attributed to Vignola, which draws inspiration from the "hall of perspectives" of the Farnesina in Rome, the work of Baldassarre Peruzzi (1519). On the short walls there are illusionistically exedra-shaped rooms, covered with fake marble and marked by pillars between which there are niches containing allegorical gilded statues; the same decoration also appears on the courtyard side wall, where the same knockouts appear, however alluding to a sort of atrium that leads into different rooms: in the upper door, Europa is painted in monochrome, garlanding Zeus transformed into a bull in the presence of one of the sisters; on the fa蓷de wall, facing outwards, a loggia is instead imitated that opens onto a rural landscape where fortified villages can be glimpsed.
The schifo vault was decorated in 1561 by Taddeo Zuccari and aides, in particular Antenore Ridolfi, the first intervention carried out in the palace under the direction of the painter from the Marches.
