The hall, which represents the reception and socialization area of the guests whose decoration is marked by a polychrome painted architectural structure supported by six caryatids per side placed on the sides of the access doors to the side rooms. The fake architecture contains four large panels where four battle scenes are depicted, taken from the history of Giovanni de' Medici, which illustrate some of the many military campaigns promoted by the commander.
On each of the six overlaps, within circular clipei supported by a pair of winged female figures with phytomorphic terminations, are the half-busts of six Roman emperors recognizable by the inscriptions placed on each with the name of the characters represented: Julius Caesar, Octavian Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero. The busts presented in profile and trocar, evoke typologies of the early Renaissance portrait and are copies of specimens in the series of plates engraved in 1606 by Raphael Schiaminossi in the volume XII Caesarum Qui Primi Rom. Imperarunt effigies.
Then we find the Room "Eden" whose decoration of the room is punctuated by a polychrome painted architectural score consisting of square pillars in fake marble, which encloses three large panels; beneath them runs a faux-marble plinth. In the three panels large biblical scenes are drawn from the old testament: Adam and Eve at work, the Temptation of Adam and Eve which presents the creation of Eve and the Expulsion from the earthly Paradise in the background.
Subsequently we find the "Angelica e Medoro room" whose decoration of the room is marked by a painted architectural score formed by smooth Ionic columns in faux variegated marble, which encloses three large panels; below them runs a faux-marble plinth with cartouches. In the walls there are three episodes taken from the Orlando furioso, a chivalric epic poem by Ludovico Ariosto published in its definitive edition in 1532: Angelica engraves on a tree the name of Medoro, the Follia di Orlando and the Castle of Atlante.
Finally we find the suite consists of two rooms: the "Intrigues room" and the "Benefit room“. On request the "Benefit room" can be used separately with exclusive bathroom. The parietal architectural score of the north-east room is punctuated by fluted columns with winged Victories at the base and Corinthian capitals, above which there is a band in which panels with mythological figures and grotesque motifs on gilded background and allegorical personifications are alternated. In the three large panels is depicted a Jewish religion theme related to exile and deportation to Babylon. On the walls are depicted the Sacking of the Temple of Jerusalem with an armed procession leading the Jewish menorah out of the city and Cyrus the Great allowing the return of the Jews from Babylon. On the third wall The return from the Babylonian exile depicted with the view of a hilly landscape and a fortified citadel with a large building under construction, towards which a crowd heads.
The "Intrigues room" whose decoration of the room is marked by a painted architectural score composed of smooth columns in fake variegated marble with Ionic capitals, which contains large panels; beneath them runs a faux-marble plinth.
