Description

The front of the cabinet reproduces the facade of the Genoese Palazzo Doria Tursi, completed between 1572 and 1579, characterized by two architectural orders. Behind the elegant facade are drawers and secrets, much appreciated by refined collectors of the 16th and 17th centuries. The recognition, on the metal hinges that allow the drawers to be opened, of the coat of arms of Ulpiano Volpi, bishop of Chieti and Novara, has allowed us to hypothesize that Volpi is the client of this valuable work.
