On the left-hand side there are some family pictures: Guglielmo, his parents Olga and Carlo, and his brother and sister, Francesco and Nicoletta. On the left-hand side of the stove, on a bureau, there are two neoclassic candle holders and a plaster bust of Marshall Radetzky. Above it there is the Portrait of Emperor Joseph II.
