This gallery houses one of the finest bedrooms of the Italian Rococo. The stagelike space is dominated by stucco and carved wood decoration. In the antechamber, fluted Corinthian pilasters support an entablature out of which emerge cherubs bearing garlands of flowers, while others present a painting by Gasparo Diziani depicting dawn triumphant over night. Above the entry to the alcove seven more children frolic, holding a shield with the monogram of the patron, Zaccaria Sagredo. Everything in this bedroom, from elaborate stuccowork to the original marquetry floor preserved in the bed alcove, forms a buoyant and joyful ensemble.
