On the left: a 18th century Venetian sedan chair, an inlaid drawer with a Biscuit porcelain bust of Emperor Franz Joseph, when he was 20. On the walls there are paintings of ancestors, including, at the sides of the entrance door, The Portrait of Giovanni Pompeo Coronini (1629-1692), who served as a diplomat for Leopold I in Istanbul; under this painting there is a leather-lined Cedar tree chest, while two corner stands are located on the sides of the door leading into the Library. On the right, there is The Portrait of Rodolfo Coronini (1731-1791), a renowned scholar who was awarded the title of Great Chamberlain and the St. Stephen Cross by the Austrian Empress Maria Theresa.
Near a 17th century canterano chest of drawer there is a statue of St. Florian, a painted wooden bust of a woman and a little vitrine with a screen-shaped clock and an engraved ivory statue of Christ. Next there is a 17th century prie-dieu from Friuli, a bronze copy of the renowned Medicean Dancing Faun and an elegant white marble fireplace in neo-gothic style with a painting, dating 1771, with the coats of arms of all aristocratic families linked to Coronini. A 19th century table is located at the centre of the room with three 17th century armchairs. Near the stairs leading to the first floor, there is a trumeau in Austrian style with inlaid work of masonry and religious symbols.
