Rome - Villa Torlonia - Casina delle Civette – Room of the swallows (Stanza delle Rondini) – Swallows (Rondini) (work of the Laboratory Picchiarini)
Casina delle Civette
The Casina delle Civette (House of the Owls) results from a series of additions to the nineteenth-century “Swiss Cabin”, which was originally intended as a refuge from the formality of the main residence. It was designed in 1840 by Jappelli. The outside of the house was faced with blocks of tufo, while the inside was painted in tempera. The complex now consists of two buildings, the main house and the annexe, connected by a small wooden gallery and an underground passage. These buildings bear little resemblance to the original. In 1908, architect Enrico Gennari began to convert the small building into a residence with huge windows, loggias, porticos and turrets, decorated with majolica and stained glass. From 1916 the building began to be known as the “House of the Owls”, probably because the motif of the owl is used widely in the decorations and furnishings. Casina delle Civette can be visited as part of the museum. The twenty rooms include 54 pieces of stained glass replaced, after restoration, in their original positions, 18 pieces of stained glass acquired and displayed on separate frames, and 105 sketches and preparatory cartoons for stained glass.

A very beautiful panel of a stained glass window that's amazing when the sun shines through, is fantastically coloured and very interesting motif and patterns. You've caught this one perfectly, Great shot, TFS

On dirait bien que tu te spécialises dans les vitraux depuis quelques temps. Tant qu'ils sont aussi beaux, il n'y a pas de problème.

My Dear Romano
tu continues ta série avec ces fenêtres vitrail avec des motifs et couleurs superbes
si tu le permets je vais conserver ta photo pour faire une reproduction en peinture si cela ne te dérange pas?
je trouve cela tres joli et si c'est un travail d'artisanat, cela doit être plaisant à réaliser

ogni finestra equivale a un quadro, più che una casa, sembra una galleria d'arte con pitture retroilluminate.
Molto bella anche questa e ben fotografata, ottima qualità e bei colori anche questa volta.
Buon inizio settimana

Romano, trovo questo lavoro molto creativo e poetico
Sono sempre attratta dalla vitraux e ammiro gli artisti che possono produrre questi pezzi straordinari di opere d'arte con le loro mani
colori favolosi e un tema così carino
complimenti per la tua bella composizione
