Palazzo Mansi – voor kunst in het landhuis van een koopman

  • Palazzo Mansi – voor kunst in het landhuis van een koopman

    Aan het einde van Lucca’s doolhof aan middeleeuwse steegjes ligt Palazzo Mansi op de loer, een 16e-eeuwse koopmanshuis met een barok interieur. Ingericht met veelal de originele meubelen is het nu de plek van het Museo e Pinacoteca Nazionale. Goden en allegorische figuren ravotten op de plafonds van het fantastisch ingerichte 17e-eeuwse huis van Kardinaal Spada (1659-1724). Boven, aan het einde van een reeks kamers gedecoreerd in het thema van de Vier Elementen, vind je een opzichtige slaapkamer gewijd aan vuur. Dit vuur is geen vernietigend vuur, maar de vlam die brandt wanneer Eros met zijn boog toeslaat. De kamer heeft een prachtig tweepersoonsbed, sierlijk gedecoreerd met bloemen en vogels. De Pinacoteca (fotogalerie) stelt werken tentoon van Toscaanse, Venetiaanse en Vlaamse meesters.
