The Wood

The painted coffered ceiling and the frescoed frieze of the hall on the first floor are in a good state of preservation. Some floors on the noble floor are also well preserved: in particular a wooden squared parquet and some floors in Barge quartzite.

The Decorations

The decorations of the ancient Palazzo Del Carretto di Gorzegno are rich in luxury elements. Stucco modelled items, gilding, stone elements, paintings and frescoes on the walls, and polychrome coffered ceilings still adorn the surfaces of the building, although having suffered the ravages of time. The historical research alongside the restoration has helped understanding that the most important construction and decorative phases belong to three different historical periods. The facade, along with the horizontal wooden supports featuring some valuable polychrome decorations, dates back to the original construction (end of the seventeenth century). The following transformations, almost a century later, undoubtedly involved the elimination of some wooden ceilings; the various polychrome stucco architecture of the atrium could be traced back to this historic period. A rich decorative phase can be attributed to the second half of the nineteenth century and still embellishes some of the rooms that feature gilded stuccoes, fireplaces, wood panelling and mirrors.
