Historical and artistic heritage

Hunting grounds of the Chigi Albani family.

The lodge dates back to 1720 and has a room in which the walls are covered with mirrors painted with cherubs and still life scenes. The frescoes were painted by Pietro Paolo Cennini (1661 – 1739) who received the commission from Cardinal Annibale Albani. Cennini also worked in numerous stately homes in Naples and Rome such as Palazzo Ruspoli, Villa Patrizi near Porta Pia, the Quirinale and in the Altieri, Lante and De Carolis palaces.

The central rose of the room of mirrors is attributed to Carlo Maratta. Adjacent to the frescoed room, there is a large room with the doorframes and windows decorated with Delft tiles.
Casina degli Specchi is considered a building of historical importance and it is protected by the Italian Department of Historical and Architectural sites.
