Labyrinth Passage

This room derives its name from the ceiling decoration, inspired by the sixteenth century Room of the Labyrinth in the ducal palace in Mantua. On the octagonal table, a collection of small antique tools and objects of daily use is arranged, including keys, locks and cutlery. The Bagatti Valsecchi brother’s attention dedicated to applied arts objects was born of their conviction that these objects were particularly adapted to their collecting characterized by domesticity, and that, furthermore, they could offer valid models of inspiration for then-modern nineteenth century artisans.
